Versatile art activities
Art Hysteria is an association of professional artists founded in 2008, originating in Saarijärvi. Art Hysteria has members representing various fields of art and the association organizes diverse activities related to the arts.
The biggest projects of the association so far have been Juuret (Roots, 2009-2011) – and Raamit (Frames 2012- ), that work to prevent marginalization of the young. You can read more about the projects (in Finnish) here http://www.arthysteria.fi/arthysteria-proj.html.

In the autumn the association organizes in Saarijärvi the Ötskä Festival for children combining music, dance and handicrafts.
