Concreate Urban Art is an annual festival that takes place in different locations and introduces art into new urban areas. The first Concreate festival was held in 2020 in East Pasila district and in 2021 at the former logistic center Keran Hallit.
At the moment we don’t know yet when and where the next festival will take place.
