Oulu Arts' Night, Thursday August 17th, 2017

Bring Your skill and talent to Oulu Arts Night 2017!

Oulu Arts Night - Oulun taiteiden yö presents people with the variety of cultural activities going on in Oulu region. Taking place on Thursday 17th of August, the event invites everyone to bring their music, poetry, theatre, art or any kind of performance to be on show.

So, if You have a band or play solo, if You have a dance act or a theatre piece, if You write and wish Your voice to be heard, do not hesitate to contact us. In Oulu Arts Night, we welcome professional artists and amateurs alike, to celebrate the city's vibrant cultural scene.

Our aim is to make Oulu, and especially the downtown area, a place where everyone can feel like home and where arts and culture are at easy reach. That is why almost all the events and performances during Arts Night are free of charge. A number of events also take place outside, in parks like Hupisaaret and Mannerheiminpuisto, so You can just come and go as You wish, from one thing to the next. Also, the Art Museum, the Museum of Cultural History, City Library and the art galleries will be open late.

Previous years have seen events ranging from classical music to harcore punk rock aerobics, from poetry slam to interactive computer art, from zen meditation classes to comics workshops and more. So, even if You don't feel like performing Yourself, there will be activities and performances worth coming to see.
If You wish to have Your act included in the Oulun juhlaviikot (Oulu August Festival) printed programme, get in touch no later than July 27th. Submissions missing that deadline will be published and marketed on the website and posters.

You can also just turn up during the Arts Night and produce a spontaneous performance.
