School on the move

The media and art faculty will move soon from the very central Finlayson Campus to Mediapolis, in Tohloppi.
Tohloppi is a very pretty area, with trees and a lake just close by, and it's easily reachable by bus.

We will share the space with YLE, and hopefully this might also be the start of a good collaboration between the Media and Art students and the Finnish broadcasting channel.

The building is not yet ready(it will officially open to the public the 6th of October)but I went to have a little preview, and I wasn't disappointed! Lots of windows, lots of light, and brand new equipment!

The building is owned by Technopolis, and both TAMK and Yle have a 20 years rent agreement for the premises, and moreover, more firms and start-ups are expected to find a new home in Mediapolis, the centre of storytelling and digital industry here in Tampere.

Let the new adventure begin!
