More information

Kalasataman Vapaakaupunki (Free City of Kalasatama) was established in Suvilahti in the summer of 2018. The area served as an urban oasis that welcomed every citizen to spend time together and to take part in events and activities. Nowadays Vapaakaupunki is located in REDI, where it has its own living room – Olohuone.

The Free City of Kalasatama was founded to create a space for culture, art, collaboration and self-reliance. From the very beginning, the Free City has embraced openness: the space is open to anyone, and everybody are welcome to organize events there free of charge. In Suvilahti, Free City provided a setting for gigs, workshops as well as barbeque and easy going summer days. The concept gained huge popularity, and it was decided that The Free City of Kalasatama would continue its operations after the summer.

In October 2018, The Livingroom in the Free City of Kalasatama Kalasataman  a living room to all citizens, opened in the shopping center REDI. The Livingroom follows the Free city philosophy: the space is open and free of charge to anyone, and anyone can organize events and activities such as yoga, music, workshops and art exhibitions. The Livingroom is a versatile space that is suited for example for working, meeting people, games or reading. In addition to the Livingroom, the Free City of Kalasatama also has a separate area for children in REDI: Lastenhuone (Childrens room). It’s a space where the little ones are free to play and spend time.

Everyone is welcomed to the Livingroom of Kalasatama. More information about the Livingroom can be found from
