ANTI - Contemporary Art Festival
ANTI - Contemporary Art Festival will take place between 19th and 24th September 2017 in Kuopio, Finland. The festival has built a programme of projects around water as, this year, it has partnered with Our Water-Conscious Land, a project that proposes Finland, in its centenary year, should work as a global advocate for clean water and its preservation and conservation.

During the festival week, besides the artistic programme, we will also hold the ceremony to announce the 2017 recipient of ANTI Festival international Prize for Live Art. And between 14th and 20th September, we will be hosting the second Future DiverCities Lab in Kuopio where four international artists will be exploring how digital technologies can augment socially engaged arts practices.
In additon to the projects presented below, the festival programme also includes works by artists and groups such as French & Mottershead (UK), Alan Dunn & Jeff Young (UK) and Volna (RU). Updates coming up, subject to changes!
