Oona Myllyntaus

Project Manager, MA, AE


I work as a project manager at Cupore for an European Social Fund supported Creative Expertise project titled Solutions for the integration of art into construction projects (2018–2020). Cupore’s research project investigates public art production in construction projects over the last decades both in Finland and internationally as well as develops indicators for evaluating the impacts of art from economic, aesthetic, and social dimensions. The research results can be applied in urban planning to improve the quality of urban environments by linking creative design to public and private construction projects.  

I hold a Master of Arts degree in Art Education from the University of Jyväskylä (Master’s programme for Nordic Arts and Culture Studies, art history). I am also preparing a doctoral thesis in Educational Sciences at the University of Helsinki’s Doctoral programme of School, Education, Society and Culture. In my doctoral dissertation the focus is on Nordic public art from the perspective of learning and learning environments. My recent research interests include development of thinking skills, school design, and questions of applied aesthetics.
