Organize an event

Do you want to organize an event that is open to everyone at Oodi? Oodi welcomes small and large event organizers, private citizens and associations alike. We offer accessible venues for a wide range of events equipped with various technologies.

In the spring you can send an application for an event held in the autumn, and in the autumn you can apply for an event held in the spring. The application form was open from the 15th of April to the 19th of May, 2024.

Open events are mainly held in Oodi on weekday nights and weekends. Open events cannot have a registration or admission fee. If you have any questions, contact us by email at oodi.tapahtumat@hel.fi

Literature event

The third floor of Oodi, called Book Heaven, is an excellent place for holding literature events. Adult literary events are held at the southern end of Book Heaven, on the Saarikoski rug. For example, a book publishing event or literature-themed discussion events are an excellent fit for these facilities.

The floor is suitable for events for 10–50 people that last around one hour and are open to all and suitable for open facilities. For such events, Oodi provides a PA system and microphones for 1–4 speakers. No fee is charged for using the facilities. If you need space for a larger audience, you can organise a literature event in our other event facilities as well. In such cases, a fee may be charged for using the facilities.

Children’s event

In the children’s area on the third floor of Oodi, you can organise open, free-of-charge events for children and families. Events can be held in an open facility or children’s event facility that also features video and audio equipment. The area is suitable for events such as publishing events for children’s books or children’s music events, as well as small-scale theatre performances.
