Ateneum celebrates on Art for Us! day on 18 April


This time, the theme of the students' event day Art for Us! is a party. Being together and having fun with friends and family were an integral part of Carl Larsson's life, whose art is currently on display at Ateneum. Inspired by Larsson, Art for Us! day includes crafting the best badge of the party, drinking songs performed by student organisations and exhilarating improvisational theatre at the Ateneum Hall.

The greatly popular Art for Us! event day is now organised for the fourth time. The organisers aim to provide students with free admission and interesting programme during the event day. There is free admission to Ateneum with the student card throughout the day.

Art for Us! event day is organised in cooperation with HOK-Elanto, Helsingin Sanomat, the Student Union of the University of Helsinki and Lyyra.
