Social events

Apart from being a conference, Geomedia 2019 aims for an experience where media, film, and geography research intersect. However, the social aspect is equally important. Throughout the conference we will make sure that there is time and situations for interesting and engaging talks.

Firstly, we will have common lunch and coffee breaks as well as several social events during the evenings.

Tuesday May 7th kicks off with the film screening of “Sameblod/Samiblood” by Amanda Kernell to be followed by the opening mingle event to be held at Scandic Winn (at Norra Strandgatan9-11 in Karlstad center). The mingle will be hosted by Karlstad Municipality.

On Wednesday May 8th, all participants are invited for the conference dinner at Olssons Bazar (at Tullhusgatan 1), which will be the perfect occasion for mingle and socializing. The conference dinner and entertainment are included in the conference fee.

On Thursday May 9th, after the film screening of Further Beyond, by Christine Molloy, participants will be free to attend dinner at VERO (Järnvägsgatan 9). This particular event is not included in the conference fee.
