ABOAGORA – BETWEEN ARTS AND SCIENCES is a symposium which brings together various aspects of academia, arts, and society. The symposium consists of interdisciplinary discussions, workshops, and diverse artistic interventions.  This exciting annual event offers a forum for researchers, artists, and the public to establish new dialogues and form novel collaborations.
