In the evening of the first conference day the participants are welcome to the Conference Dinner at the Restaurant Aula, the Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova Museum, which is situated in the city centre.
The evening will begin at 7.00 p.m. Please, remember to sign in for the dinner when you register.
Aboa Vetus is builtaround an excavated medieval city block. The discovery of a part of old Turku during renovation work on the Rettig Palace took even archaeologists by surprise. The arched cellars and cobblestone streets had been buried underground centuries ago, without a trace. Now the public can see them just as they were uncovered, and a museum rich in experience has been created around them.
Ars Nova began as a home for the art collection of Matti Koivurinta, and now functions actively as a museum of contemporary art. In the museum, visitors encounter the gems of the collection and changing exhibitions of contemporary art in exhibition halls built in a private palace. Ars Nova hosts the European Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary Art every alternate odd-numbered year.
