Organizer information




In our program, we want to bring forward the diversity inside Helsinki through art and culture.
We are especially looking for new, current and stand taking professional productions, without forgetting communal and participatory projects. We are open to all brave and original ideas. Interdisciplinarism and multilingualism are a bonus. We are also interested in alternative production methods (for example streaming).

What are we looking for Caisa’s program:

1) Ready productions (premieres and reruns)

2) Ideas for future productions

3) Communal and participatory courses for children and families

Application time:
18.12.2020-31.1.2021 by 4 pm.

Proposals and ideas can be presented also to the 2022 program. It is also possible to send new ideas outside the open call application periods.

What we offer:

All productions selected for Caisa's program will be provided with Caisa's facilities, technical equipment and technical personnel (not for light/sound design). In order to facilitate cooperation, a Caisa producer will be assigned to each production, who will be responsible for managing production for the house. Fees and other costs are negotiated with each production separately before the contract is signed. In terms of communications, all productions under Caisa’s program will be featured on the house’s website, with more specific measures being negotiated with our sector’s communications service. We also expect our production partner to invest in communication and marketing.

You can visit Caisa's premises in advance:

How we decide:

At the end of the application period, Caisa’s team will review all applications and select those productions that best meet Caisa's selection criteria for further negotiation:

• Caisa's main role in promoting diversity and inclusion

• City strategy and Caisa values

• Suitability for Caisa's premises, taking into account the technical equipment of the house

• As well as other wishes expressed in the search (themes, priorities, etc.)

Caisa producers will enter into initial negotiations with those productions that will specify potential costs, schedules, specifications, etc. The team will then make the final decisions and seek to notify applicants by the end of April at the latest.

If your proposal is not selected this time, you will also have the opportunity to rent our premises for your use.
