Taidepiste: Elevating the everyday

What kinds of things elevate our thinking beyond the everyday life? Instead of religion, can we gain experiences of sacredness through art, for example? What do we consider irreplaceable? 

These questions will be discussed by e.g. bass guitarist Sami Yaffa, actor Cécile Orblin, cultural journalist Jussi Ahlroth and docent in music therapy and researcher Sami Alanne. The discussion will be moderated by entrepreneur Anna Moilanen

In addition to the discussion, violinist students Onni Kunnola from the Uniarts Helsinki’s Sibelius Academy and Albert Sahlström from the Junior Academy of the Sibelius Academy will perform music composed by Sergei Prokofiev (1891–1953) and Henryk Wieniawski (1835–1880).

The last Taidepiste event of the year will take place in the second-floor lobby of the Mylly building on Uniarts Helsinki’s Sörnäinen campus, and it will be live streamed on Uniarts Helsinki’s YouTube channel.

Taidepiste is Uniarts Helsinki’s event series, which explores social phenomena through multidisciplinary discussions and art experiences that are free and open to the public. High-quality recordings of past Taidepiste events are also available for later viewing on YouTube. Taidepiste is sponsored by the Louise and Göran Ehrnrooth Foundation in 2020–2022.  Read more about the Taidepiste event series.
