A LETTER FROM HELSINKI
Thank you so much for the invitation to the 14th Nordic Workshop. How time flies, it feels like we had ours in Helsinki just yesterday!In planning the workshop, you’ve taken Gerd Gabrielssen’s seminal words as your guideline and beacon. And these were the words that Leni reminded us of in her talk in Helsinki, 2017.
It’s indeed essential that we always remember where we come from in order to understand where we’re headed. We wish you luck and we know that Hannover will be just as uniquely inspiring as all the previous workshops.
See you soon! Bis bald!
Leena and Sandro
Our brilliant friend Naoko Aoki (1954-2018) was always reminding us of the importance of “defending stories and sharing one”. In the article in Independence, she was, together with Anja Burkert and Sandro John Amendolara, looking back on the Helsinki Workshop. Let’s keep her story alive!
