Norwegian Minna Canth

Kanttila creates possibilities for different organisations to operate together in a creative environment.

Future long-time partners could be the University of Eastern Finland’s science cafe, city of Kuopio and other companies and education providers. Some examples of organized events could be seminars, festivals, fairs, parties, concerts and performances. Kanttila aims to be a commonplace space for like-minded people to come together to network.

Kanttila is a meeting place for everyone, where science and arts become a daily topic and the globally challenging issues are not avoided. Weekly events and changing group of residents create a vibrant environment. Kanttila will also have a year-round travel information centre, café and cultural services development unit.
