Vuosaari 21

Klockriketeatern has launched a new three year project in collaboration with the Finnish Museum of Photography and KOM-theater in Vuosaari. Vuosaari 21 project is produced within the Helsinki Model -project and is a continuation for previous Kätketty Vuosaari project in 2016–2018. 

Vuosaari 21 project introduces workshops and local art happenings in the urban space of Vuosaari organized together with the local habitants.  After three years of collecting material and ideas, we will produce a performance in 2021.

The idea behind the Helsinki model -project is to democratize and balance the art and culture offerings in the suburbs of Helsinki.

In it's Kätketty Vuosaari -project 2018 Klockriketeatern explores traces of nature and human beings in collaboration with artist Petra Vehviläinen and the pupils of Aurinkolahti's secondary school.
 
Through small archeological explorations in their surroundings, the pupils have collected a set of traces and knit them into networks of routes. The work brings items that normally are considered unworthy into focus and challenges to think about their life cycles.

Discussion about community art

 
Community art: from viewers to makers.
Place: Globe art point, Malminkatu 5.
Time: 11.12. at 14.30–18.30

After a couple of years of Klockriketeatern's community art project Kätketty Vuosaari, we want to discuss and share tools with our colleagues about community engaged art.

Our guest for the discussion and workshop is Ditte Bjerg from danish research-based Global Stories which examines sociological and political issues by using perfomative and interactional strategies.

We address questions like how to reach and engage communities from viewers to makers? How can we work in a sustaInable way? And ultimately how to foster diversity in the field of community arts?

To participate in the discussion, please confirm and send a short description of your project with a few main challenges (or questions you would like to discuss) in your work by the 5th of December to julia.h.k.hovi@gmail.com.

Kätketty Vuosaari

Klockriketeatern examines the district of Vuosaari in 2016-17 in its community art project Kätketty Vuosaari, the hidden Vuosaari.

In its workshops for teenagers, Klockriketeatern examines through sound, writing, movement and video not only the Vuosaari area, but also ways of conducting participatory community arts. 

Kätketty Vuosaari invites local teenagers to examine their neighbourhood by means of art. The art pieces created during the workshops are then located in the area of Vuosaari, first as live installations, and then as geocaches that encourage the public to visit Vuosaari on their own and experience it through local peoples perspective. 

Kätketty Vuosaari is part of Helsinki City Culture center's Helsinki Model -project, which brings art organizations to perform community arts in different districts.
