ABOAGORA is a symposium which brings together various aspects of academia, the arts, and society. This exciting annual event consists of interdisciplinary discussions, workshops, and diverse artistic interventions.  The Symposium offers a forum for researchers, artists, and the public to establish new dialogues and new forms of collaboration.

The next Aboagora event will take place on August 22-24, 2018 at the Sibelius Museum in Turku, Finland.

Aboagora also organizes the annual and international Falling Walls Lab Turku innovation contest for young academics and entrepreneurs.



The Symposium is organized by the University of Turku, Åbo Akademi University, and the Åbo Akademi University Foundation. In 2017, the event was supported by the City of Turku, the Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland (Svenska Kulturfonden), the Turku University Foundation (Turun Yliopistosäätiö),  the TOP Foundation (TOP-Säätiö), the Otto A. Malm Foundation (Otto A. Malm lahjoitusrahasto), Visit Turku, and the Centre for the Study of Christian Cultures.
