Päivi is giving a keynote presentation about creative placemaking public art seminar on the 22nd of November organised by Vantaa city planning office.

Our project Meri-Rastilamme will be part of a Cities for All -book, published by STIPO later this year.

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.
