Do I need a studio to take part?

As of today, Konstrundan has relied mostly on support from finnish-swedish foundations. In the future, we are looking to involve also finnish foundations. Further we also hope to sell more advertisments, gain sponsors and we are looking into the possibility of founding an own supporting organisation for Konstrundan.
