Helsinki Flow School

Helsinki Flow School is a workshop model intended for young people where they can learn extensively about the event industry and the work opportunities it offers.

In the workshops and meetings, the participants learn about the areas of event production and conceptualise and plan an event to be realised at the end of the course. The meetings include lectures and tutorials directed by experts in event production and youth instructors.

As a result of the first Helsinki Flow School held in autumn 2020, the You X by Helsinki Flow School event and its implementation plan were born based on the ideas of young people themselves. The event will be held in Suvilahti, Helsinki, on Saturday 18 September 2021.

You can apply for the next Helsinki Flow School in autumn 2021. Stay tuned!

You X by Helsinki Flow School

In October 2020, one of the largest festivals in Finland, Flow Festival, and the largest employer in Finland, the City of Helsinki, started the Flow School workshop series to introduce young people aged 15–29 to the production side of the event industry.

The mentors from the City and Flow Festival provided the young people with the tools for realising their ideas. Through this cooperation, You X by Helsinki Flow School was born. This event will be held for the first time this summer.

The young people organising You X envisioned an event of the future on their own terms and created an event concept that, instead of big names, focuses on diverse new talent, environmental values and relaxed fun. You X offers the stage, and young people bring their talent. In the Tiivistämö area in Suvilahti, you will be able to experience explosive festival spirit in an entity that young people have curated for themselves.

You X by Helsinki Flow School will be held in Suvilahti, Helsinki, on 18 September 2021.

  • From young people for young people!
  • A stage for rising talent
  • A springboard to achieving your dreams
