ACCAC Finland and its main partner (the City of Tampere) have made a responsible decision to postpone the ACCAC Culture 2.0 Festival scheduled for this autumn by one year. The exact dates of the 2021 event will be announced as soon as possible, after new facility reservations have been made and other groundwork has been completed.
The reason for this decision is the COVID-19 virus and resulting uncertainty about the near future and how our global community will manage the situation. At a time when people’s movements are being restricted for health reasons, we cannot prepare to welcome participants from more than 20 countries and every continent. The health and safety of people is our most important value.
Preparations for the event were already well under way, and we have been ready to publish the festival programme since March. Now our focus is to ensure that this amazing programme takes place one year later – after the world has recovered from this crisis and coronavirus is under control.
