Communication beyond words: SANAHUONE


Nowadays it is important to do multicultural work to improve the communication beyond words. Poetry and art in all manifestations could be the best way to start a multilingual conversation.

For that reason Salasanat, The Sound Room of Third Space, Sivuvalo and Caisa are preparing SANAHUONE.

A place where poetry, sound art & audiovisual experimentation converge to re-create nocturnal soundscapes.

Friday 4th of September, from 19:00 to 22:30 hours.                                                        

CAISA International Cultural Centre. Mikonkatu 17C/ Vuorikatu 14. 00100 Helsinki.
