The Art For All Festival will take over the Kalasatama area and will be accessible for free!

The 2023 edition will have three main areas for exhibiting art: Sompasaarenlaituri 6 Space, Antareksenkatu 3, and Hermannin rantatie 17.

We are looking for a diverse combination of works from different disciplines to interact with the spaces! Each space is part of an apartment building, so we kindly ask the participants to be respectful and not to disturb the inhabitants.

If you have any questions about the spaces feel free to contact us via email: artforallry(at)gmail.com

Each Space has its own spirit and place in the Kalasatama ecosystem. Scroll down to discover more!
