In summer 2017, Anthoni became one of 42 artists selected for the art exhibition Generation 2017 at the Amos Anderson Art Museum in Helsinki, where over 1,200 works of art were submitted. His self-composed piano piece Ø. was exhibited. As a result of this, he got the opportunity to play three sold-out solo concerts at Kamppi Kappel in the middle of Helsinki, at the Helsinki Night of the Arts. Ø. was further selected to be exhibited at the Jyväskylä Art Museum at the exhibition Generation, where they marked the museum's 20th anniversary.

Anthoni is also one of the initiators of Lounge Sápmi – a live concept in Guovdageaidnu where the artist of the month will hold an intimate concert, then open a jam session. The focus of Lounge Sápmi is to work so that musicians and music enthusiasts of all age groups can express themselves in an alcohol-free music environment.

In 2019, Anthoni was asked to be one of three producers in the music project SGP Cover, where the producers were to make versions of old songs from the Sámi Grand Prix. The songs were performed during the Sámi Easter Festival and as an intermission feature at the Sámi Grand Prix. The song "Mu ustit" was released on 27 September 2019.
