Freshman day 27.8.2021

Orientation day 27.8.2021 of the Uniarts Helsinki will be both a live and a remote event via Zoom at 11:00-14:00. 

The purpose of the day is to bring all the students from different academies together and get to know the University of the Arts a little bit better. We hope that the day will spark your thinking and create connections that expand your artistic horizons during your studies.

The programme is in two parts, because you can EITHER come physically to the place OR participate remotely in Zoom. The place is the Soutustadion stands (Merikannontie 4, 00260 Hki) and we can keep the required safety distances, as we are outdoors.

TASK: Take one item that is the color of your acadamy (clothing, mug, pillow etc) and bring it with you either to the Soutustadion or the Zoom. If you're coming to Soutustadion, also take a phone with you so you can join the Zoom sessions.
