Ptarmigan’s funding is non-existent but they’ve pledged to be as flexible and accommodating as possible with the goal of making the summer engaging, lively and fun. If you think you can contribute something to this bizarre “summer camp”, then head over to the Ptarmigan website to read the open call.

Join The Next Photo Tagging Amok!

As the continuation of an archiving process that started a couple of years ago, and as an exploration of peer-production tools, Pixelache is organizing a series of open sessions focusing on how to archive Pixelache’s ~30,000 photos from the past 12 years. These sessions are called Photo Tagging Amoks and are led by Pixelache’s all time photographer Antti Ahonen. Have a look at our progress so far.

Next month’s Photo Tagging Amok event, featuring a pot of Antti’s soup, will take place on Wednesday 12.2 at Pixelache office. The two first Amoks have focused on 2013 pictures, and the series on each occasion endeavours to go further back in time.

Pixelache goes RuutiExpo 2013 (8.11.)

The registered organisation behind Pixelache, Piknik Frequency ry, took part in the RuutiExpo 2013 event, at Kaupungintalo (Helsinki City Hall), now the 3rd time organised by the Youth Department of the City of Helsinki in cooperation with the Educational Department. The event promotes youth empowerment, hosts youth elections, and offers also a space to take part in practical workshops, share opinions, presentations.

One of the main purposes of the event is to create discussion forums and candidate positions to bring voice of youth to city decision-makers. Indeed the event organisers say “Come to the venue and find your own way to influence!” – RuutiExpo is free and open to youth of all ages. Ruuti translates into English as gunpowder (or saltpetre, which is also the explosive mixture used in fireworks), and ‘naturally’ is associated with power or a discharge of energy. This year the event was attended by approximately 4500 people (youth & adults).

A large number of city youth services as well as NGOs and associations took part, mostly hosting workshops or presenting messu (fair) -type displays. Piknik Frequency was encouraged to take part for the first time, and had a table in the Toimintatori (Activity-market) among others. As one of the few cultural associations present, the aim of being there was to try raise awareness of Pixelache Helsinki’s Festival, and our outreach & education programme around the year called Pixelversity, as an opportunity for city youth to get involved with experimental art, design, research and activism processes.

Case Pyhäjoki report: With joy and love

Case Pyhäjoki – Artistic reflections on nuclear influence‘ was a trans-disciplinary expedition and production workshop in Pyhäjoki, Northern Finland from 1.-11.8.2013. The sixth nuclear power plant (NPP) of the country is planned to be built in Pyhäjoki Hanhikivi cape.

Participants of Case Pyhäjoki were for example artists, researchers and activists. The programme consisted of lectures, meeting local people and expeditions of different kinds to get to know the area; nuclear power as a phenomenon, and what the power plant means to people. It reaches from the local to national and global. What are artists’ role related to the changes in the area and wider? How can we develop methods of creative work in a complex and contested place of social tragedy and distress? How can we communicate this through to wider networks?

The following text below is a report by Case Pyhäjoki initiator, artistic director and executive producer Mari Keski-Korsu. Case Pyhäjoki was organised as a collaborative work group in between herself, artist-organiser and researcher Andrew Gryf Paterson (Pixelache) and musician and artist Antye Greie-Ripatti (Hai Art).

Trashlab events at Kaupunkiverstas: Now 2.10. & monthly in 2014!

Trashlab korjauskahvila / repair cafe
Keskiviikona / Wednesday 2.10. klo 16-19.
Kaupunkiverstas – Kohtaamispaikka@Lasipalatsi


Each month during 2013 we organise and promote a Trashlab Repair Cafe event at a different location.. In October, Kaupunkiverstas — Helsinki City Library’s new maker space on the site of Kohtaamispaikka

in Lasipalatsi — hosts the next repair café event on Wednesday 2nd October from 14:00-18:00. However, this is just a pilot event, and monthly events have been negotiated to take place in same location monthly during 2014.

Prototype Helsinki and Kohtaamispaikka@lasipalatsi have organised the Kaupunkiverstas (Urban Workshop) series of events which are planned for urban citizens, urban activists, city councilors and officials. In the workshop-type events, urban culture and city streets is presented from the perspective of active authorship. Authorship and participation is intended to support two different approaches: enabling and gathering specific activities, and opening up new perspectives on urban culture. More information (in Finnish).

Several members of Trashlab activity were kindly invited to part in an expert brainstorming session in March 2013, which also discussed this new Library-managed maker-space, and so we are very happy to one of the pilot grassroot users of the space.

On this repair café occasion in October, we have identified two fixers on hand for the occasion, again by popular demand Charlotte Remming, who offers support in sewing and fabric repairs; as well as Eero Yli-Vakkuri, who can help with many matters related to wood, electronics and various household objects, as well as doing good turn sharpening knives and scissors… He is a general wizard!

This Trashlab repair café is made at the invitation of and supported by Prototype Helsinki network coordinators.
