“We are now revealing everything! We will share the jewels of Oulu’s bid book with amazing guests and conversations”, tells the Director of Oulu2026, Piia Rantala-Korhonen.
How has Culture Climate Change been created and what would the title of European Capital of Culture bring with it?

- Literary Artist Timo Harju, Artistic Director of Oulu Theatre Alma Lehmuskallio,
