We encourage everyone to be environmental-friendly and use the digital programme material instead of printing it. We will not hand out printed programmes or schedules during Stretch Turku.

Please take time to read the following information before making your choices during the sign-up process:

Sign-ups and ticket sales

Sign-ups and ticket sales are now open and will close on 26th September (23:59 GMT+2).

All registered participants have received the link to the sign-up form by email. If you are registered and cannot find the email, first check your spam folder and then contact us at: stretch.kedja[at]

You will need to sign up for most of the programme and buy performance tickets in advance. Some workshops and performances can take in a very limited number of participants, so be sure to sign up sooner rather than later.  

Detailed information about the sign-up process, terms and conditions can be found in the sign-up form.

Venues and locations

The main programme venues are Visitor and Innovation Centre Joki in the Kupittaa neighbourhood and Manilla Culture Factory.

Morning classes will take place in Manilla and in the Arts Academy (west of the city centre).

The main programme (Thu-Sat from 10.15 to 17.00) will take place in Visitor and Innovation Centre Joki and Mauno BioCity (Kupittaa neighbourhood southeast of the city centre).

Performances will take place in various venues around the city.

Please reserve time to transfer from one location to another by foot or by bus. All Stretch participants will receive a bus card. More information on getting around with buses will be available soon.

You can find all these on the Map of venues and locations (see above).

All venues are wheelchair accessible, except for Barker Theatre, Dance Theatre ERI and Kutomo.

Remember to eat!

Please reserve time for yourself to eat, especially if you intend to see more than one performance during the evening. Good moments for grabbing a bite are before or after performances. Restaurant tips for quick bites as well as proper dinners near the venues will be available soon.

Lunches are served in Visitor and Innovation Centre Joki.

All sorted out with travels and accommodation?

If you haven’t booked your accommodation yet, be sure to do so as soon as possible. Our hotel deals are valid until the end of September (subject to availability) and can be booked through the link that was sent to you upon registration.

Important! Thursday 17th through Saturday 19th will be full programme days, so we strongly recommend arriving in Turku on Wednesday 16th and departing on Sunday 20th.
More information on practical arrangements and traveling here.

The programme is subject to changes and additions.
