Jump on a series of tram discussions organized by Helsinki Design Weekly, presenting questions and searching for answers to the themes of city, culture and work.

These discussions are rooted deep in this year’s Helsinki Design Week theme, Q&A, pondering urban development, education and learning, sustainable development, spaces and houses, as well as creative field entrepreneurship and cooperation.

A tram dedicated by our partner HST to culture will transform into an after-work design tram that will tour the districts of Helsinki. There is a predesigned route for each daily theme to support the discussion topic.

Graphic designers’ association Grafia, start-up centre Maria 01, working community coach and creative work promoter Avantage Oy and Ompeluseura (“sewing circle”), a working life community with more than 20,000 members on Facebook, have created fascinating content for the rides.

Tram starts at 16:00 from Mikonkatu 15.

You can also listen every discussion later on a new kind of audio listening service called Kieku. You find Kieku here.
