A few weeks ago, the Humanities Theatre was officially opened. This new facility at the English Park Campus is a modern amphitheatre, designed as a limitless arena for education and innovative thinking, based on open conversation. The inauguration really showed off the theatre’s potential. The sound system and acoustics are impressive. The merest whisper from the floor can be heard by everyone in the theatre and in the course of the evening we experienced film, song, theatre, music and lectures with a greater intimacy than ever before.
The audience at the opening ceremony was a mixed crowd. Some of those there had heeded the opportunity to contribute to the unbounded dialogue by sponsoring a chair. I’ve also done this. If you would like to join in and contribute, you can read more at http://www.uu.se/en/support/humanities-theatre/.
Now I look forward to many exciting activities and conversations in the Humanities Theatre. The doors are open, now we’re inviting the world.
