You are kindly invited to join us for a very special opening celebration. The Italian architect Giorgio Palù, currently designing a new concert hall for the music school Lilla Akademien in Stockholm, will be presenting his sculptural works in a large exhibition at the Italian Cultural Institute in Stockholm - his first such exhibition outside of Italy. This event is curated by Francesco Mutti together with our Board member Galleri Duerr in collaboration with the Italian Embassy. Lilla Akademien’s Chamber Orchestra will be opening the exhibition.
One of the most common questions we get asked is "Where can I watch NFL games in Stockholm?" For years many of our members have been gathering at Hard Rock Cafe near Odenplan at Sveavagen 75. This is done in cooperation with NFL Podden, a great sports podcast which discusses NFL news in Swedish.
Change of an unprecedented nature is happening in the United States and the world. Values and ideas that have been regarded as traditionally American are being questioned so that the nation is asking itself: “Who are we?” With this, other nations of the world are forced to pose the same question of identity. Question marks hang over nearly every area of life: work, leisure and even family. How do we move forward together in a space that we are unfamiliar with, with people who may not share one or more of our views? This event is held every month prior to our Third Thursday mingle.
Our monthly mixing, mingling and networking event, Third Thursday (or "3T" as regulars call it) is open to anyone with an interest in The American Club of Sweden. It's even a great opportunity for those considering membership to get to know our members and learn more about our club.
The Third Thursday of each month we gather at Hilton Stockholm (Slussen) from 17:30-19:30.
Please see americanclub.se for details about specific Third Thursday events.
Third Thursday Networking Mixers are held on the third Thursday of each month.*
As a rule, Third Thursdays are informal -- in the tried-and-true American fashion -- business cards, handshakes and a smile. American Club members and non-members are welcome and everyone is encouraged to bring guests.
No reservation necessary, just drop in. Non-members welcome!
Would you like to showcase your company, product or services at an upcoming Third Thursday? Let us know via americanclub.se/sponsors.
In many parts of the world, native peoples have long suffered forced relocation and ethnic cleansing. It was only in 2007 that the UN General Assembly adopted the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, aimed at redressing injustices such as violent colonization and forced dispossession of lands and resources.
Over the past ten years many indigenous communities have made major steps. Perhaps most importantly, we've become more open to the vitality of indigenous cultures, as people around the world are learning from each other's experiences and struggles.
Ellacarin Blind & Bruce Lambert will discuss Sami & Hawaiian experiences of displacement. Bruce aims a mild focus on examples such as how visions of "the New World" and "discovery" can be confrontational, and how Native Hawaiian inheritance might be better administered. In contrast to many island communities worldwide, US Federal law in Hawai'i allows non-resident land speculation with gravely negative social costs. The US military footprint is also severe, including seven military golf courses on the island of O'ahu.
