Here is more information about the various spaces we’ll be using at the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture (at Hämeentie 135 C Helsinki) – the main venue of Open Knowledge Festival 2012. To get more of an idea of what it all looks like, we also have an OKFest Flickr pool with many photos of the venue.
For details on how to get to Helsinki, and how to get to Aalto University within Helsinki, we have a travel information page here. For advice on accommodation in Helsinki, we also have a page with details on hotels and hostels here.
