We are looking for people to create murals for two rooms in a communal workspace which will open in Kuopio in September.

The competition is open to everyone interested in making wall art. You are free to choose the subject and style, but here are some keywords that can be useful for you: community, joy in work, enthusiasm, change, opportunity, color and light, inspiration, synergy.

You are free to decide whether to paint just one wall or more. You can see the pictures of the rooms below. Note that the walls look curved due to panoramic images, even though they are straight in real life.

Room 1 (16.5 m²)
Room 2 (18.5 m²)

The selected winners will be paid a fee of 500 euros. The fees are paid in cooperation with RSP Brewing and Record Coffee Company. Paints are provided by RTV and Tikkurila. The paints are basic renovation paints.

If the artist / group (1-3 people) needs to travel to Kuopio and stay there while working, we will provide you with the accommodation and travel fees (within Finland).

The participation period is 20.7. – 8.8.2021. We will personally notify the selected authors by August 10, 2021.

The implementation will happen in weeks 33-34. The work itself must be done within five days. A more specific timeline will be agreed on later date.
