#StopHatredNow is an intercultural and anti-racist platform organised in collaboration with several art and intercultural organisations. The platform strives to create discourse on diversity, inclusivity, power structures, otherness, and intersectionally feminist strategies. The event is is aimed at individual artists, cultural influencers, and institutions of art and culture, but anyone interested in the topics is welcome.
This year’s #StopHatredNow strives to find ways of coming together and to actively practice coexistence. How does one continue to work towards equity and diversity in the middle of multiple crisis? How can the state of crisis become a chance for change, a chance to re-negotiate old and tired structures?
This year the event focuses on community, collaboration, action, sustainability and questions regarding accountability. The goal is to empower others (and one another) so that even in the midst of crisis, we would continue to have the strength to actively dream and practice coexistence.
The event is initiated by UrbanApa arts community and co-produced in collaboration with Caisa, the City of Helsinki, Culture for All, Frame, Globe Art Point, Goethe-Institut Finnland, Interkult ry, MiklagardArts, New Theatre Helsinki, Punos ry, Uniarts Helsinki and Zodiak – Center for New Dance amongst others.
