The Art Gifts and Block Concerts that gained wide popularity last year will also be realised this year in an even wider format. Soon yards will echo with surprises!
Due to popular demand, we will be handing out up to one thousand Art Gifts this year! Anyone can order to their loved one’s yard or window a 5 to 10-minute surprise performance from a musician, poet or other performing arts professional.
The concept developed for last year’s Helsinki Festival has, in the past year, also spread to other cities, like Reykjavik, when we donated the open source code for the search app for anyone to use.
Free Art Gifts can be ordered starting from August 16.
Art Gifts are produced in partnership with OP Helsinki.
