Participation, dialogue and exchange: ANTI works with innovative artists on projects that explore and explode urban space.
We produce an annual international arts festival. We curate events and programmes across the year. We are home to the ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art. We’ve been here since 2002. We’re based in Kuopio, Finland.

Artefact is a ceremony for obsolete technology.
It commemorates the mysterious phenomenon of brand disappearance from Blackberry, to Nokia. It is a tribute to the immortal consumer icons we have internationally adored and the intimate and fickle ways we worship them.

20.00 – Restaurant Puikkari | Maaherrankatu Street 5
The Future DiverCities Lab Artists will stage an intervention at Matkus, the biggest shopping mall of Kuopio to collect contributions – data on sonic memories, hope and discomfort – from the local people! The overmapping concept contains multiple layers and will be presented in form of a light and map installation during the ANTI Prize Party in the restaurant Puikkari.
ANTI Festival will host an experimental artist residency “Lab” as a part of the Future DiverCities project in Kuopio. This will be the first of the 19 Artist Labs which will test and develop the practical approaches of Future DiverCities vision and mission.
