5. Open Call for Cultural Happenings

Operation Pirkanmaa is holding an open call for Cultural Happenings to take place across Tampere Region’s municipalities.

Between 2022 and 2024, Operation Pirkanmaa will continue the legacy of the Tampere26 ECoC bid and help implement numerous culture programmes planned during it. Now, the project has announced the first call for new cultural content. This open call will lead to over 60 cultural happenings in the Tampere Region from August to December 2022.

Operation Pirkanmaa’s Cultural Happenings have no admission fees, are open to everyone, can be participatory workshops or expressions of different art forms, and will take in place Tampere and elsewhere across the region. Their purpose is to increase cultural activity for the region’s locals in their everyday lives, as well as to enable previously planned ideas or artworks to be implemented in new environments.

Operation Pirkanmaa is calling for concepts of three different sizes. A remuneration of 1,500, 4,500 or 9,000 euros will be paid for each of the chosen events. A total of nearly 200,000 € has been reserved for this. The network of Tampere Region’s heads of culture will select which concepts will be implemented. The call is open until 2nd June 2022.
