Aalto University and the University of the Arts Helsinki (Uniarts Helsinki) have signed a partnership agreement on 28 September 2018 to promote the universities’ structural development and academic collaboration. The goal of the partnership is to reform society with the help of art, design and creativity.

The collaboration will focus on six different areas, which are research, teaching and artistic activities; infrastructures; promotion of international competitiveness; establishing cooperation between services and support functions; digitalisation; as well as the promotion of art and creativity in society.

Among other joint aims, the universities will strive to develop cooperation between professors and to promote the reputation of Finland and that of the Helsinki Region as a forerunner when it comes to art and creative fields.

A working group to plan for the future of the scenographic studies

The universities have also set up a working group to reflect on the future of the  scenographic studies. For years now already, some of the studies at the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture have been organised in collaboration with Uniarts Helsinki’s Theatre Academy.

With the deadline set for the end of the year, the working group is tasked with determining different options on how to arrange the studies in the future as they relate to teaching, students, personnel and other study-related matters. Based on this work, the universities will decide on future study arrangements and a more detailed schedule for the measures.

The working group is chaired by Head of Department of Film, Television and Scenography Anna Heiskanen (Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture) and Dean Maarit Ruikka (Uniarts Helsinki’s Theatre Academy).
