What is true and what is false?

During Stockholm Culture Night, the Nobel Prize Museum initiates a dialogue about freedom of expression.
What does freedom of speech really mean, and can we take it for granted?
What drives Nobel Peace Prize laureates and their constant work for free journalism?

The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded for over a hundred years, including to people who defied bans and called regimes. Hear the astonishing stories of individuals who worked with courage and perseverance for free speech. Dmitry Muratov and Maria Ressa, 2021 Nobel Peace Prize laureates, are examples of Nobel Prize awarded journalists who have defied bans and restrictions. We will show their acclaimed lectures in our cinema all evening as well as immerse ourselves in their work on our guided tours.

During the evening, you will also meet the journalist Martin Schibbye who was innocently sentenced to 11 years in prison for terrorist crimes in Ethiopia. Today, he supports reporters around the world who have been imprisoned or persecuted in their work. On two occasions, this talk is given on our stage, do not miss it.
