We are proud to present the Program for Kalkforum 2023!

The Finnish Kalkforum 2023 will be held in Turku (Åbo), Finland between Friday August 25th and Sunday 27th 2023. The program will begin early Friday morning 8:00 in Helsinki with bus transportation to Turku, with a few excursion stops on the way. Friday and Saturday seminar will be held in Turku Castle. Sunday 27th will be an optional excursion day taking all those participating from Turku back to Helsinki center or directly to the airport by 17.15. Those not participating in the excursion can take a train or bus back to Helsinki independently.

The program offers a highly interesting variety of professional speeches. The main themes will be rereparation, long-term maintenance and research. Keynote speaker Heritage Officer Heikki Ranta from Lund, Sweden, will offer a deep insight under the topic: “Build, Repair, Rerepair”. The Turku Castle will play an important role as the venue and host, but also as the main character in several of the speeches.

Organizing the Kalkforum has been made possible by a broad participation of Finnish heritage professionals, encompassing public, corporative and private instances alike. Funding has been provided by Senaatti-kiinteistöt, the National Board of Antiquities and the Governing Body of Suomenlinna. 

The practical organizing has been headed by Engineering office Mehto and Architectural office Okulus. Turku in August is a wonderful small-scale city, lively and usually warm in weather as well. On behalf of the organizing committee, please be warmly welcome to Turku! Kati Winterhalter (Okulus) and Reino Huuskonen (Mehto) Note: For those wishing to arrive earlier in Helsinki, a simple, self-guided program for getting acquainted with Sveaborg (Suomenlinna) restoration sites, will be arranged for Thursday 24th. A simple get-together will be organized for the evening of the 24th in Sveaborg, Helsinki.
