Disturbances is an open series of lectures and discussions at the crossroads of society, philosophy, history, economy and resistance.
We are already aware that we can not live as before, but we do not know what the future holds. Others are stuck in the past, but we only want to understand it. Even a small disturbance of an initial condition can lead a system into a completely different state.
Our speakers are Finnish and international anti-authoritarian researchers and activists. Events are organized in cooperation with A-ryhmä and AutOp, two student groups of the University of Helsinki. You may also follow lecture online (both real-time and recording) at http://bambuser.com/channel/A-ryhma.
Our program is created by the participants themselves, if you want to join or simply get in contact, write firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children are welcome to any events of A-ryhmä by default! We have now also a separate room from 4:30 to 7 PM in case children get tired of lecture.
