Whether we are old or young, Danish or Arab, rich or poor, the way we sense and experience beauty is the same for all of us. That belief is at the core of Eutopia International Festival which, as part of Aarhus 2017 (European Capital of Culture), seeks to create open and genuine meetings between humans, cultures and art forms. On top of the many concerts, plays and dance performances that form the backbone of the festival, guests are also invited to participate in a range of smaller events such as workshops, debates and guided tours in the area.  The aim is to include as many active participants and spectators as possible, as artistic director Brigitte Christensen explains.
