Tampere 240 – Art along the Tammerkoski Rapids
Tampere, in Finland celebrates its 240th anniversary on 1 October 2019. The jubilee year will be celebrated for 240 hours through arts and culture in a 10-day event organised by the City of Tampere between 27 September and 6 October 2019. The public art entity that will be constructed around the new Tammerkoski shore route will be an essential part of the celebrations. The aim is that the shore route will offer artistic experiences and become a special passage to both local residents and tourists visiting the city.
In recent years, Tampere has developed in various ways and its reputation as one of Finland's leading cultural and event cities has strengthened. In addition to a wide selection of events and cultural experiences, tourists are attracted to Tampere by the city's attractive atmosphere. The cityscape and national landscape of the Tammerkoski Rapids will be invigorated in the autumn of 2019 through various art forms. We invite professional visual, light, sound, performing and performance artists, as well as students and educational institutions, to offer artworks for inclusion in the jubilee year celebrations
