H-talo | Haapaniemenkatu 20
Accessible Event

ANTI Festival hosts the fourth Future DiverCities  Lab in Kuopio before and during the festival! The Lab will be based in an urban room – a pop-up store in the centre of town – which will act as a space for people to meet, make and discuss. It can be used and visited by other local artists, festival artists and the public.

In the Lab, artists from different artistic backgrounds and around the globe work together in the frame work of the Future DiverCities project, in relation to each other, the local environment and community, sharing practices and engaging members of the community in artistic interventions.

The 2019 Lab artists are Kattrin Deufert (DE), Kim Modig (FI), Lara Thoms (AU) and Martin Finnland (AT).

The Lab is hosted by ANTI in partnership with creative facilitators of The Map Consortium (UK) and artists local to Kuopio; Veera Launonen and Lauri Hei.
