The fifteenth Konstrundan in Finland will be held during the first weekend in September, Sat–Sun 3–4.9. Participating creative artists will open their workrooms and studios to the public.

Creating value thorough the country


The aim of Konstrundan is to increase awareness of domestic contemporary art, arts, crafts and design.
As a participant, you benefit from national visibility, new contacts, and an opportunity for direct sales
and, above all, Konstrundan generates many meetings with people interested in art.


It is especially important at a time when activities have been limited due to the corona pandemic. "Right
now participants need the meetings and the visibility that Konstrundan generates and for many, the
weekend is also a welcome sales opportunity," says Konstrundan's Project Manager Martina Lindberg.

Konstrundan 2021 had a record number of participants and visitors: a total of 485 artists across the country had over 23,200 visits during the weekend! “Even though the total number is large, they are distributed over many visiting points so all visits can be corona safe for all parties. An advantage of
not having too many people in one place at the same time is that it creates great opportunities for
conversations and meetings,” Lindberg continues.


Please share information about Konstrundan to creative artists in your networks!

Updated!! WEBINAR 2.9: HOW TO SURVIVE AS AN ARTIST TODAY?

There are not many obvious " job openings" for artists to apply for despite a solid professional education in the art field. Own initiative and creativity are the hallmarks of the working artist. The question is how this is perceived by the individual artist.
