Pasila Urban Art Center, opened in June 2019, is a place dedicated to urban art. At the center you can check out urban art exhibitions that change approximately every 6 weeks. The exhibitions can be viewed Thursdays and Fridays from 12pm to 6pm and on Saturdays from 13pm to 4pm, and during events. At the centre, you can also explore urban art themed literature
At Pasila Urban Art Center, you can also participate in art workshops. We arrange both public and private graffiti and street art workshops, where participants get to paint straight on walls. We also arrange for example movie nights and anything you can think of. (If you have an idea about an event of activity, don’t hesitate to contact us!)
The events and exhibitions are not limited to inside spaces as the center organizes art projects that spread outside into the public urban space and other areas in the Pasila area. During the last few years East-Pasila has become a real street art district.
Pasila Urban Art Center is supported by Finnish Cultural Foundation and Kuluttajaosuustoiminnan säätiö.
