What is Roso?

Roso unites artists to create art together.

Roso-tuotanto unites different people from different backgrounds to work together and learn from one another. We are a combination of a creative community, an internet forum and online media. The goal of our operations is to support and strengthen people’s potential and prepare them for studies and employment through creative activities. We organise activities online on a regular basis: workshops, event, competitions and sparring under the guidance of experts and peer instructors from different art disciplines. The Roso magazine that comes out once a year functions as the showcase, gallery and stage for the productions made in Roso’s workshops. Roso members are responsible for its content and publishing.

Our target group is young adults and people with disabilities aged 18–35 who are at risk of social exclusion, as well as social and cultural professionals working with young people. Roso provides them with tools to apply creative activities in an online environment and an opportunity to network and exchange information. We welcome everyone interested in our activities! The understanding towards one another grows in different human encounters. Right?

Roso-tuotanto is a member organisation of Kukunori ry, an NGO for culture and mental health, and Roso is funded by the Funding Centre for Social Welfare and Health Organisations STEA.
