ANTI Festival will be hosting the second Future DiverCities Lab in Kuopio prior and during the festival. Four international artists will be exploring how digital technologies can augment socially engaged arts practices.

The Lab is hosted by ANTI in partnership with creative facilitator Chris Higgins from The Map Consortium (UK) and artists local to Kuopio: Anniina Aunola, Emma Fält, Eerika Jalasaho and Ilkka Kivelä.

The working process will be shared in a public event on Wednesday 20th at 18.00 at Pinari (Pyörönkaari Street 19).
