The Planets (2024–2030)

In 2024, Aboagora launches a new thematic entity titled “The Planets,” which draws its inspiration from the orchestral suite of the same name composed by Gustav Holst (1874–1934) between 1914 and 1917. The annual themes will be based on the seven movements, which will provide inspiration and a thematic starting point for each year’s events:

2024:  Mars, the Bringer of War
2025:  Venus, the Bringer of Peace
2026:  Mercury, the Winged Messenger
2027:  Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity
2028:  Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age
2029:  Uranus, the Magician
2030:  Neptune, the Mystic

The annual Aboagora events approach their theme both literally and metaphorically through various scholarly and artistic viewpoints. The program includes panel discussions, lectures, performances, excursions, concerts, workshops, and various combinations of these.

Aboagora 2024 – “Mars, the Bringer of War” – will take place on 28–30 August at the Sibelius Museum in Turku. The program will be published on this page in May.
