Henrik Gerner Hansen
Henrik has worked at the European Parliament's Information Office in Copenhagen for a number of years in a Public Relations role. Prior to that, he was employed by the same parliament for some 20 years in Luxembourg and Brussels. He is a tireless advocate for European collaboration as a promoter of intercultural understanding and respect and of international, political stabilty. He is looking forward to retirement.
With an upbringing that did not lay any particular emphasis on cultural activities, Henrik was curious to discover the different aspects that culture could offer. He is now what can only be described as a "culture vulture" - enjoying music, dance, theatre and gastronomy. His only experience of participating in theatre was during his spell in Luxembourg, as a member of a theatre group performing for Danish-speaking children.
Henrik has been Secretary on Why Not Theatre Company's Board since its inception in 2011. He also assists the Company on a practical level during productions. He is particularly appreciated for his work "behind the bar".
Married to Sue Hansen-Styles
