Mera konst! (More art!) was a project that gathered together municipalities from Sweden and Finland to compare different ways of acquiring and procuring art for public spaces.
During 2017, More art! organised a number of open seminars in various municipalities around Finland. The participating municipalities, chosen by open application, were Kokkola, Pori, Tampere, Riihimäki, Sipoo, and Hämeenlinna.
“Regarding the end result, it is extremely important that the art is planned in the building at an early stage, before technical solutions are planned,” says Stockholm konst Project Manager Päivi Ernqvist.
