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.
