In the heart of the project is an effort to find a completely new perspective to create experiences where food and music are enjoyed as a joint sensation experience. To succeed in this effort, the project relies on cooperation between the professionals of music, food, culture and experience and event productions.
KUMURU is a two-year research, development and innovation project funded by the European Regional Development Fund. Additional funders are The Regional Council of South Ostrobothnia, City of Seinäjoki, Economic Development Centre of Seinäjoki Region, University Fund of South Ostrobothnia and University of Turku.
