Kalasataman Taidetalkoot part 1 Painting

Update – an article in Helsingin Uutiset 

I’ve been asked to help with a community project in recently developed district of Kalasatama in Helsinki. Annika Niskanen and Mikko Niemisto are working now to assist the local community in claiming the public space and turning it into a park. After nearly a year of work, they got a city council permission to turn a section of an outdoor public car park into a recreation area. Several meeting with Kalasatama community were called, where the adults and kids of the area designed the hangout area.. Painting the tarmac road and granite rocks in vibrant colours was first in the agenda.IMGP4875

Two weekends were spent in August in the parking lot, rain and shine. Dads particularly enjoyed drawing the traffic map and the game area and painting dragons.IMGP4885IMGP4986IMG_1952 IMG_1960 IMG_1964 IMG_1971 IMG_1973 IMG_1978 IMG_2010
