Aboagora is an event that promotes dialogue between the arts, humanities and sciences, and aims at challenging and breaking boundaries between arts and the scholarly world. Aboagora is a joint effort by the Turku Music Festival, the Department of Cultural History at the University of Turku and the Donner Institute, Åbo Akademi University.

In August 2011, Aboagora brings current scholarly debates to Turku and
creates encounters between arts and sciences. Aboagora starts in Turku
during the European Capital of Culture year 2011, and the theme of the
first symposium is “Rethinking Enlightenment”. The programme consists of workshops, keynote lectures and concerts.
