Well, here it is- Otaniemi Free Space. A collaborative playground, test platform and culture space for the Otaniemi community. A space for co-creation, experimentation and excitement. A space for new kind of interactions instead of just events.
The project will be organized in the former ADD LAB Cafe (Sähkömiehentie 4G) during 7.4-27.5.2017.
We also want to break the barriers between organizers and visitors: anyone can join our crew and become an active agent. This space is for the community from the community, totally up to the participants what will happen.
