See you in Kallio in Fall 2018!

Besides Caisa’s own productions and those of their cooperation partners, performances by external groups take place in the hall. We rent out our facilities and art galleries to art professionals.

Independent associations, societies and groups that promote multiculturalism can meet in the meeting facilities of Caisa and organise their own events at Caisa.

Performances and concerts

We rent out the hall to professional performing arts groups, musical artists and other cultural operators. Performances based on various cultures play a key role in our programme.

Reservations for the autumn season programme are accepted as of the beginning of January, and for the spring season as of the beginning of August. Contact our Production Assistant: Merja Taivalantti-Bouchghoul tel. +358 9 310 37503,


Monthly changing art exhibitions are organised at Caisa. We rent out the gallery facilities primarily to professional artists. We accept exhibition applications year round, and they are processed in spring and autumn.

The 180 m2 gallery offers of space for hanging two dimensional pieces of artwork and white stands for displaying sculptures. There is natural light in the space thanks to the extensive windows along the side of the building.


The tall space in the Lobby gallery is ideal for various installations. Large pieces can be placed on the walls of the hallway. A large skylight brings natural light into the gallery.

Corridor Gallery

You can extend an exhibition in the gallery to the corridor or only use the corridor as an exhibition space. Photographs, drawings, graphic arts and small paintings can be placed in the corridor gallery.


Societies, groups and associations can use the Caisa meeting rooms for free on weekdays and Saturdays for a maximum of two hours. The use of premises is always based on a co-operational or rental agreement. If need be, associations and organisations of modest resources can reciprocally produce programme for and participate in organising Caisa events.
