Vuosaari – In other words
The Finnish Museum of Photography’s project Vuosaari – In Other Words started in the spring of 2016 in Vuosaari, Helsinki. The three year project will bring with it a multitude of events and exhibitions, including photography, audio and video workshops for the youth in Vuosaari.
The needs and wishes of local youths will determine the final shape and form of the events.
Through the Vuosaari - In Other Words project, The Finnish Museum of Photography will engage the population of Vuosaari with activities and events that enable participation. The project is carried out with the support of the City of Helsinki Cultural Office, and is a part of the Helsinki Model.
The aim of The Helsinki Model is to diversify and create a balance between the arts and cultural activities offered in various parts of the city. Arts organisations and groups of professional artists are urged to step outside and work together with local residents and communities in various districts.
