The Centre for Arts Innovation is engaged in an expanding number of projects with a strategic focus on experimental activities grounded in interdisciplinary approaches. Pushing the boundaries of how we understand arts innovation, projects are regularly initiated from inside the Oulu University of Applied Sciences as well as established with the support of funding from regional, national and European Commission sources. As a long-term expected outcome, we strive to support the growth of Finnish and European ecosystems in the fields of arts production, innovation and Cultural and Creative Sectors and Industries (CCSI) business development.
