Arts testers

The Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestra is part of the large-scale Arts Testers project run by the Finnish Cultural Foundation, the Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland and the Association of Finnish Children’s Cultural Centres offering all pupils in grade 8 of the Finnish comprehensive school a chance to gain personal experience of the arts.

During the school year beginning in autumn 2020, the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture will be financing the project for a further year. The spring 2020 Arts Testers season had to be interrupted because of the pandemic and we are at present looking into the potential for virtual content.

The OCO is happy to be one of the arts providers in the additional Arts Tester year.
