Project Description


Kaapeli – the Cable Factory is the largest cultural centre in Finland. It houses 3 museums, 10 galleries, dance theatres, art schools, artists, bands and companies. Unique spaces are also available for rent on a short-term basis to stage concerts, exhibitions, festivals and fairs. Around 900 people work at the Cable Factory on a daily basis, and each year nearly 340,000 people attend special events.

Once an industrial complex producing cables, the centre now offers things to see, do and experience every day of the week for culturally inspired people of all ages. The Cable Factory offers 3 different event spaces, sauna and 3 meeting rooms for rent on a short-term basis. They are used for fairs, festivals, concerts and exhibitions all year round. Today, the Cable Factory is administered by the property management company Kiinteistö Oy Kaapelitalo, which is owned by the City of Helsinki.
