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.
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.
