Exile and women’s rights in Iran (Norway / Iran)

An inspiring artist talk featuring Erik Hillestad, Mahsa Vahdat, and Solveig Slettahjell, in connection with their breathtaking concert Lullaby of the Sea during Oslo World.

The talk emphasizes the importance of music in promoting understanding, empathy, and social awareness, and how art can inspire audiences to think critically about social issues and connect with others across cultural and linguistic barriers.

Lullaby of The Sea Beyond Music
Beyond Music - "Lullaby of the sea: Exile and women’s rights in Iran"

In addition to the theme of human cohesion across cultures and languages, the backdrop for the project also resonates with the current situation in Iran. The development of human rights in Iran has forced many people into exile. In particular women have been engaged in a struggle for change in the past year, starting with the murder of Mahsa Amini in September 2022.

Don't miss this opportunity to experience the power of music and art in fostering human connection across distances, cultures, and languages.

The talk will be in English, and it's free entrance after the concert.
