Dear Friends of Helsinki Script,
Thank you for our inspiring international discussions on creating and commissioning series, in an always packed Savoy theater in the years 2016 – 2019.
Thank you delegates, thank you speakers, thank you volunteers and thank your partners for enabling it all.
In 2020, the year marked by cancelled or digitized events due to Covid-19, Helsinki Script will take a break to change form.
In 2021 Helsinki Script will merge into a new Nordic script project and event, with a strong Helsinki presence. Updates are to follow.
Stay creative, motivated and safe!
 Liselott Forsman  (Program Director ) on behalf of the whole team
