As individuals, organisations and societies, we need creativity more than ever; crises turn us inwards, narrowing mindsets and ways of thinking and doing.  

A better – but more demanding – option is to stay curious. 

In this spirit, it is with great pleasure that we invite you to the Sweden premiere of Radical Creatives, a documentary directed by an Aalto University alum Emilia Hernesniemi.

With this film, we want to start a conversation about creativity. When creativity is combined with trust and respect for diversity, its innovative power starts to show in teams, organisations, and the world at large. It's only then that we can speak of radical creativity that truly changes the world.

The film is an artistic commission produced by Aalto University and a production company ÄÄRI. The 58-minute screening will be followed by a panel discussion by Tuomas Auvinen, Dean, School of Arts, Design and Architecture, Aalto university, Fredrik Lindgren, CEO, Royal Swedish Opera and Maria Sandell, Head of Sustainability, JM AB, moderated by Ella Turta, Programme Coordinator, Hanaholmen.

We are organising the event together with Hanaholmen - cultural centre for Sweden and Finland.

A light lunch snack will be served at the event.

We look forward to seeing you there!
