Creative Lenses Catalyst Programme Case Study: Kaapeli
Kaapeli is a company that runs two cultural centres based in former factory buildings in Helsinki. The organisation gets no public subsidies for its activities. It survives on the income from renting space for artists, arts and cultural organisations. Yet, the team decided to move beyond renting out space and hosting events. They wanted to strengthen the relationship with their tenants and visitors. This case reveals how even small changes can evoke new thinking of the organisation’s future.
