As contributor/ perfomer

Citizens, schools, organizations, artists, municipalities and so on - are

welcomed to freely offering and/ or visiting planned or spontaneous happening events in public. By doing so creating an accessible experience with keeping up the values of diversity, equality and respect. In this way people get introduces to new horizons, asked different questions by new aspects and given insights from strangers they would not have met otherwise. – Strangers are not strange!
