GalleriaKONE, Ars-Häme Ry is an independent artist initiative. Originally founded in the early 1970s by artists and curators, the association has since its inception focused on developing programs that stand for inclusion and diversity, building on the idea of open access. The premises are located in the cultural and congress center Verkatehdas in Hämeenlinna, Finland.
GalleriaKONE, Ars-Häme ry aims to organize, develop and implement cultural, multidisciplinary and intercultural projects in the social, artistic and educational fields. The aim is to promote local, national and international activities by working with public and private institutions and involving artists and the general public.

Specific activities include the organization of exhibitions, the running of an art library and the provision of numerous artist studios. From the year 2020, the establishment of an Artist in Residence program will be included.

Ars-Häme annually organizes exhibitions with its members abroad as well as Art Week in Hämeenlinna together with other cultural actors.
