OAF X Hospital Nova

The festival program conquers the Hospital Nova in Jyväskylä, where patients, staff members and visitors get to enjoy artistic contents. The hospital staff and volunteers guide the audience through the contents of the event during the festival. For example, this year, the first outsider art residency is realized in the hospital. In the residency, together with the staff members and patients, the artists create fascinating contents for the hospital. Crazy good events and contents are awaiting you!

You can get to know more about Hospital Nova’s arts program and the OAF X Hospital Nova artist residency at HAM Corner’s Talks program on Fri 19.8. at 16-17!
