Band Rehearsal Rooms
Oulu-based bands can hire rehearsal rooms. The rooms are rented for a fixed period, for example one year. The application period is in May.
Youth organisations can use the youth facilities free of charge, and apply for funding from the Youth Committee, providing youngsters with a meaningful and safe place to meet up at.
