STOP CUTTING ARTS! -demonstration in Väre 31.3.

Please note: this is not a Guild event.

Aalto ARTS students are fed up and are worried about the direction it is taking ARTS, The School of Arts, Design and Architecture. It is considered that the priority of the university is financial benefit, not the students. Students do not have spaces that they need and they do not have a say in matters that have the biggest effect on us.

We students are choosing to act and make ourselves seen and heard. On Thursday 31.3.2022 there will take place “Reclaim Väre” demonstration in Väre. Students, faculty and any other people who’s interested are welcome. Event will be organized by Stop Cutting Arts Collective consisting of ARTS students from different fields of studies.

Stop Cutting Arts Collective has made an agenda (please see the appendix) with an intention to create discussion within students at the university. Students feel that present discussion forums and channels have not been adequate. Three followings are the main demands:

1. Stop cutting our studies and the budget of ARTS

2. More transparency to the decision making

3. Give back our spaces

Reclaim Väre demonstration will happen on Thursday 31.3.2022 from 12 pm in Väre, The School of Arts, Design and Architecture, in Otaniementie 14. Most of the events will take place in the Väre lobby or near it. The main language will be English in lectures, workshops and other activities during the event. The final schedule will be published closer to the event.
