Safe Havens Freedom Talks

About Freedom Talks

Our new programming series Safe Havens – Freedom Talks series is closely connected to the annual global Safe Havens conference which we have organized in Malmö since 2013, and in Cape Town, South Africa in 2019. The monthly Freedom Talks series will focus on issues regarding threats towards artistic freedom, free press and intangible heritage. Guests in the Freedom Talks series are highly knowledgeable and prolific actors in the global Arts Rights Justice sector – fighting for artistic freedom.

You will be able to watch live-streamed versions of the talks through our website and social media channels, and step by step we will open for an audience and on- site participants when the Covid-19 risks and restrictions are over. You can follow our channels for updates. The talks will be in-or translated to English.
