Funded by Interreg II Karelia 1996-1999

Objective of the project

The project was implemented by the Environmental Center of North Karelia and the Art Council of North Karelia. The aim of the project was to transform the Ryynänen house with its courtyards, built in the 1930s in the very center of the village of Koli and in the immediate vicinity of the national park, into the center of Koli art and culture. The goal of the project was to create a basis for the implementation of a cooperation agreement between the Commission on Arts and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Karelia. The center was going to become part of this collaboration through courses, artist exchanges and exhibition activities.
