Extended group info

 
Tennari is a program that engages youth, providing resources so they feel safe to voice their opinions and ideas, ask questions, learn through experimentation and explore their world through creativity. Including young adults into the Helsinki Art Museum´s structure and activating them to become not only an important part of the museum but also their own communities.
 
The core is a peer-led board of 10 people aged 14-22 who work with the Helsinki Art Museum to produce events and programs for other young adults.
