Helsinki Design Week brings on a lot of interesting talks and happenings. We are invited to give a presentation in Exhibition Centre WeeGee in Espoo during a day of talks from architects, researchers and designers on 15th of September. See the full program here
Kortteeri is a project developing new models for enlivening city centres and “the plinth” in small and medium sized cities, utilising community art and urban design methods. Päivi is facilitating and consulting in the project, funded by European Social Fund and run by SAMK and partners in four Finnish cities.
During 2017-2019 we have a working grant from Koneen Säätiö to support our artistic development. As a result we are producing three works about or in public space. First work in the series was the exhibition Sammelsurium in Vuotalo.
We are now part of the Placemaking Leadership Council – a global network of professionals working for better public spaces.
