The Aalto community celebrates Wappu in its traditional time by carrying out the Wappu traditions digitally. Wappu events will be collected on this page. Please fill out this form to publish your Wappu event. We also offer support for the planning of Wappu. If you have any questions or otherwise need support, please send a message to wappu@ayy.fi.

Wappu is a unique celebration and its uniqueness is based on its timing and the Wappu traditions of the Aalto community. Other seasons have other celebrations, the spring is the time for Wappu.

AYY encourages all Aalto members to develop safe and digital ways to carry out a memorable remote Wappu. This year, Wappu will be different than ever before, but even more memorable, and that is something we can all celebrate together!

Stay tuned!  We will update information in English as soon as translated!

On this Vappu, the University of the Arts Student Union (ArtSU), responsible for the traditional Crowning of Havis Amanda, will arrange the ceremony entirely in a virtual environment. Conducted in cooperation with the City of Helsinki and VR studio Zoan, the virtual crowning ceremony offers an opportunity to experience the traditional event in a wholly new and unique manner.

The event offers viewers the opportunity to interact and experience much-needed communality in virtual reality. The ceremony starts with an interdisciplinary art performance by the students of University of the Arts Helsinki, featuring a multi-lingual ode to nature, inspired by the climate crisis.

The crowning of Havis Amanda can be experienced interactively at www.burst.fi on May Day Eve, April 30, at 5.45 pm. It is also the start of the larger Vappu programme offered by the City of Helsinki, which can be watched in its entirety on the Helsinki channel.

With the help of the virtual crowning ceremony, we want to remind everyone to celebrate Vappu safely in the current exceptional circumstances. We hope that instead of flocking to the city centre or Ullanlinnanmäki, everybody would watch the ceremony and toast their glasses in their homes!
