Talo opens your senses to culture


The Leisure Board of the City of Rovaniemi has published a brand new brochure Open Your Senses to Culture. If you take a closer look at the leaflet, you find a nice surprise.


“Talo, the Rovaniemi Residency for Creative People, gives people from outside Rovaniemi the opportunity to live in the Arctic region for a few months and get inspired by the creative community.” That’s right, you should be here!


Year 2013 has started well for residency


News from wintery Talo! In March the residency is celebrating it’s first birthday after a busy year. Each and every guest from Finland, Denmark and Germany has been charming. New connections has been established between residency visitors, Lapland and people living in Lapland.


Our arctic residency will continue offering a place to work for creative people as planned after the pilot year. Some changes has been made considering the costs. During year 2013 we have started to collect a small 100 € fee per month from the residency visitors. This fee includes everything from the apartment to the workspace in Talo.


And without further ado, welcome to Talo!



Table’s identity crisis.


In the beginning of last summer Päivi found a beautiful table from “Tuhat tori” flea market, but for some reason we didn’t purchase it. After nine months we ran into the same table again and this time we decided to buy it. Now it has been properly cleaned and it has a new glass. Only thing bothering the table’s happiness is it’s identity crisis – who am I?


Have you seen this table before? Do you know who designed it? Help the table to find it’s true identity!
