Today is a good day for coming to see Vastavalo’s darkroom in Kaleva.

For the past few months, with the active members of our club, we have made some efforts for making the darkroom better than ever. The room is now divided into two separate spaces, where the other is possible to dim into total darkness, while having the lights on on the other.

To celebrate the finished project we are having these small and spontaneous opening party. So if you are interested, today 19th of September at 6 pm at Väinämöisenkatu 11 there is opportunity to come to see our renewed darkroom space and eat club sponsored snacks. Take your own beverages if you want to have those.
