Creativity day filled with music, art and illusion
Karolinska Institutet’s Culture Week took place between October 14 and 18 with numerous events and activities that showcased the richness of talents and perspectives within our university.
As the culmination of the week, President Ole Petter Ottersen, the Cultural Council, and Medical Students’ Union (MF) invited all KI students, staff, and alumni to a Culture and Creativity Day programme in Aula Medica filled with music, movement, illusion and cultural conversations.
For KI President Ole Petter Ottersen, art is of great personal interest and he is passionate about showcasing a wide variety of perspectives.
“I am convinced that art and other cultural expressions contribute to new ways of thinking that inspire our creativity, challenge us in our work, and strengthen our university. Culture Week gives us the opportunity to discover some of the many exciting connections that exist between culture, creativity and science. It also gives us a unique forum to meet across traditional university boundaries so that everyone who participates can be part of creating something together, which is central to KI’s Strategy 2030 and to our core values.”
The programme in the Aula Medica was followed by an evening in the student union building with live music and a photo exhibition.
