What is Taidepiste?

Taidepiste is Uniarts Helsinki’s new event series, which explores social phenomena through multidisciplinary discussions and art experiences that are free and open to the public. Taidepiste is organised once a month in the Main Foyer of the Helsinki Music Centre and on the Uniarts Youtube channel.

Taidepiste is a platform for equality-driven, warm and respectful discussions, where compassion increases honesty and honesty increases compassion. In each event, a new group of artists and experts from various fields take the floor. Audience members, too, are welcome to participate in the discussion on equal footing. Taidepiste aims to give people with different kinds of professional backgrounds the chance to discuss topical and meaningful phenomena.

Art helps us perceive alternative worlds, and it makes it easier for us to put our focus on even the more difficult subjects. That is why all events will also include music, fine arts, theatre, dance, poetry or performance art, offering a unique perspective on the evening’s theme.

Taidepiste is supported by the Louise and Göran Ehrnrooth Foundation.
