We will begin the program at Flavoria’s multisensory space called Aistikattila. Aistikattila is located in the University of Turku Medisiina D -building (address: Kiinamyllynkatu 10, Turku). 

Please notice that there are multiple entrances in the building (from A-D), but we recommend using the D-entrance because it is the closest one to Aistikattila. Once you enter the building, turn left at the information desk and walk down the ramp on your left – the door to Aistikattila is on the left at the end of the ramp.  

We recommend using public transportation or bicycle when arriving at the venue. The building is also a short walking distance from Kupittaa train station. If however you arrive by car, we recommend parking at the parking garage (Pysäköintitalo 1, building 23 in the map) located near the building. The parking spots are located in the P1-floor. The prices for parking are 2 euros per hour, 10 euros for the entire day. You can pay for the parking using coins, credit cards or the EasyPark-app. The customer service number for Aimo Park Finland oy is 0207 812 442.
