AiR Frosterus

A quiet place surrounded by nature

Let the northern nature and the warmth of the local community inspire you in Kärsämäki, Finland!

Though relaxed, the residents of Kärsämäki are very active in organizing events and they have a small town do-it-yourself-attitude. Kattilakoski Culture Cooperative is the active force in the cultural scene of Kärsämäki, and our residency artists have a front-row seat to the local cultural life.
