ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival and Amnesty International Kuopion organise a communal dance event ”Take me as I am” at Kuopio Market Square on Monday 18th June starting at 12 pm. till 1 pm.

both in Finland and globally.

We also aim at bringing together people coming from various backgrounds and creating dialogue
between them through arts.

We are looking forward to a multicultural participant group!

The workshops will be arranged
on Tuesday 12th June and on Thursday 14th June at 4 pm. (till 6 pm.)
