Young Visual Art (Nuori Taide in Finnish) is a nationwide forum for visual art makers aged 13–28. It organises art exhibitions, art residencies, workshops, trainings, and Nuori Taide events for young art makers as well as those working closely to visual culture created by young people. In addition, it maintains Taide\Folio portfolio website and showcases young artists on Instagram.

Nuori Taide events are organised every second year in different cities in Finland. Events gather hundreds of young art makers to exhibit and sell their art, organise workshops and discussion programme as well as performances. In the event, young art professionals work as mentors or discussion partners of young art hobbyists. Content is created together with 15 young volunteer production assistants and regional partners. Next Nuori Taide 2025 event takes a place on 17th May 2025 in the city of Tampere and it is produced in collaboration with the city of Tampere's Youth Cultural Centre Monitoimitalo 13.
