Nurmes - karelian town for artists →

nurmesiandesign:

I think Nurmes-town and Pielis-Karelia is good place for artists..

There is cheap rent for workroom (I pay about 100€/month and other was about 70€/month, rents included electricity and running water) and that famous (atleast in Finland) “joyful karelian” atmosphere.

Nice 100 years old wood building milieu with birches (listen radio recording in finnish), where many smiths worked in old times… and we have that small gallery-artothèque for Pielis-karelian artists - Aamu&Virkku - which is connected to organic food shop.. Nurmes-house’s library and Gallery Tyko for expositions
