This upcoming trans-disciplinary weekend of events aims to connect the practice of informal cultural cooperation and formal cooperatives (kulttuuriosuuskunta) in Pirkkanmaa and wider Finland. Including the network cultural scenes of Pispala Kulttuuriyhdistys and Pixelache Helsinki, this event follows the ICA Global Research Conference held in Mikkeli in late August. At the conference most of the arguments promoting cooperative entrepreneurship were socio-economical, with few cultural and practitioner voices. Welcome to join us, take part and share yours!
The Coop Camp is a tietotalkoot event, an occasion to learn about cooperatives, to share experiences, stories and practices of different types of cooperativism, as well as a place to ask for co-operators, gathering not only local Finnish cultural perspectives and ambitions, but also those of a more international networked scene. Hence, the weekend starts in Tampere centre with a keynote presentation by Franz Nahrada from Vienna, about the Global Villages Network; and continues on the Saturday in Pispala neighbourhood with informal presentations, screenings and activities from lunchtime to evening.
