Celebration year people's assembly 13.-27.10. Celebration year people's assembly 13.-27.10.

The New Oulu was founded at the beginning of 2013. It did not come out of nowhere: it was built on the strong foundation of five municipalities. The Celebration year people's assembly gathers people and ideas sprung from Oulu and out to the world to the City Theatre for three nights. The aim is to find an answer to the question: How to act in the future to make Oulu into a flourishing capital of the North?
