Be brave – be creative
The purpose of the School of Media and Performing Arts is to ensure the availability of skilled professionals of music, dance and media in Finland and particularly in Northern Finland – now and in the future. We hold traditions in high regard, but also want to develop something new. Our active research, development and innovation as well as close international links help us to keep our finger on the pulse of our field and the region.
Professionals of music, dance and media are visible and audible every day. They create content for traditional and new media, they arrange events and performances, and they can be found in schools, at the workplace, in concert halls and dance venues.
We want to share our expertise and learn constantly from others. We interact with the culture and arts scene in the region and contribute to enhancing the well-being of the people in Northern Finland.
