Literary Art Festival Muusajuhlat (Muse Festival) is the most notable literary happening in Oulu area. The festival brings together poets, writers, musicians, and artists from all around Finland. The versatile programme offers something for literary enthusiasts of all ages.
The programme is mostly in Finnish but there are also events that include multiple art forms and are suitable for non-Finnish speakers.
The events are centered at the Oulu City Library and Restaurant Tuba, but there are also events in other restaurants, libraries and nearby municipalities in Oulu. Most events are free of charge.
The nine poems or muses of antiquity have inspired humanity since ancient times. Now the muses are calling us to the world of reading and writing once again. The books delight, enchant and captivate. When reading them you can empathize, be charmed, reminisce, stray and linger – the books have all our stories and countless worlds.
The festival is produced by Huutomerkki ry.
