CONTEMPORARY ARTS FESTIVAL displaying international community-based pieces in Helsinki and online.
The Finnish Cultural and Academic Institutes are excited to release the full programme of the Together Again Festival!
Taking place in Helsinki, the festival culminates the two-year international Together Again art programme. It has been produced by the Finnish Cultural and Academic Institutes. where community-based art projects have been created in Amsterdam, Helsinki, London, Madrid, New York, Oslo, Paris and Porto. Together Again continues the story of the project Together Alone, a creative project developed in the spring of 2020 to reinforce the work opportunities for artists during the time of pandemic. Now, it is the time for a reunion, and Together Alone becomes Together Again.
The programme explores collective processes of making socially engaged art through exhibitions, keynote lectures, artist talks, screenings and performances, both online and on site. During the festival, audiences, artists, and cultural professionals are invited to come together and discuss what being together means at this moment in time. You will encounter new pieces from artists Matti Aikio, Minna Henriksson, Uwa Iduozee and Kairos Collective, as well as continuing projects by Aapo Nikkanen & Léa Domingues, Post Theatre -kollektiivi and Pehmee-kollektiivi. The keynote is given by Assemble, London-based Turner Prize winning collective.
