Annantalo is a place of many art forms
Are you under 19 years old, from Helsinki, and interested in animation, architecture, dance, theatre, visual arts, ceramics, textile art, literature, comics, photography or making graphic art with traditional methods?
Annantalo offers many art forms, and its programme contains activities for children and young people year round: art courses in various fields, workshops, performances, events and exhibitions.
In summer 2017, the new A.lava, which continues the popular Summer park activities, will begin operating on the building’s grounds (Kansakoulunkuja’s side) and providing young people with things to do throughout the summer, though mainly focusing on June and August.
