OPEN CALL

Suggest an event or a public program to the Library of Museum of Finnish Architecture!

Do you have an event or a public program that you would like to organize at the Museum of Finnish Architecture? Would you like to try something new or even test a workshop concept at a low threshold? Do you need a venue for a lecture, a movie club or a music performance? Do you want to set up a reading group, discuss literature, give a presentation, or organize a get-together on a current topic? Do want to organize a book or zine launch or something else?

The Museum of Finnish Architecture will open the doors of its renewed library in March 2020. The space reform will allow open and free of charge public events to be held in the library. The Museum of Finnish Architecture has now opened a continuous open call for events and public programs. The museum library offers space for a variety of groups and small events related to architecture, art, science and culture.

Proposals are reviewed once a month and all applicants are informed of the selection. Selections are made by a multidisciplinary working group consisting of the staff members of the Museum of Finnish Architecture. Currently, around 1–2 events or public programs are selected for one month.
