In total, four cultural houses; Vuotalo, Kanneltalo, Stoa, and Malmitalo including Savoy Theatre will introduce themselves and explain what opportunities they offer to artists and creatives. Short introductions will be followed by one-on-one sessions where participants can ask questions and network with the professionals representing the cultural houses.
