New lease on life for VR Group’s old engineering works
In order to come true, the Turku 2011 programme required new, adaptable premises. Some performances and exhibitions required a large industrial hall or a similar space. Logomo was created to meet these needs.
After Turku’s year as the Capital of Culture, Logomo has continued its operations and has grown into a diverse event centre for creative industries. The modern premises, built with skill within the old building, have been praised for their state-of-the-art technology, for example.
The creative industries play a significant role in the Turku region’s economy. Creative industries account for some 2,500 businesses in the area.
Logomo is Turku’s creative industry hub. It served as the base for the 2011 European Capital of Culture events, rapidly establishing itself as one of the key cultural venues nationally. In 2013, more than 700 events took place in Logomo, attracting some 260,000 visitors.
