What is Kuopio Encounters?

Kuopio Encounters is a community art project with an aim of engaging local people including new immigrants who were refugees. The project is led by artist Ernest Truely, ANTI Festival and the New Start Finland! research project. The project culminates in an event in the Kuopio Market Square 23 September 2017, 11:00 – 14:00.

Kuopio Encounters offers a variety of opportunities for participation and engagement in the local context. In the workshops you will tell creative stories through social media, in Kuopio you may pass around posters and fliers. We invite you to join the preparations for our “Welcome to Kuopio” party by sharing your talents in art, dance, music, food preparation or you could volunteer to greet visitors 23 September

Together, we can invent new memories in Kuopio.

The project culminates in a real world event at the ANTI Contemporary Art Festival, which correlates with Online content.
