ARD general meeting 5-6pm (open to all)
Debate and music: 6-8pm

The association ARD ((Art Research Dialogue/www.a-r-d.org) invites you to an evening of debate, music, food and Thursday beer at Overgaden. For 10 years ARD has involved socially vulnerable groups in projects both at home and abroad, all of which have been designed to improve the life situation of the involved parties. This evening the association presents different working methods, which have aroused from the specific projects and been developed along the way, and sets the stage for a discussion on how art can be used as a platform and method to solve societal problems.
