The Finnish Museum of Photography works in collaboration with KOM-theatre and Klockriketeatern within a transdisciplinary project Vuosaari 21. During 2019-2021 the project brings along multitude of participatory activity and events, such as happenings, and workshops as well as public art works. Activities are planned together with the production group and the locals of Vuosaari. Materials and ideas gathered throughout the years will work as building blocks in the creation of a participatory performance which is presented in 2021.
Vuosaari 21 is carried out with the support of the City of Helsinki Cultural Office, and is a part of the Helsinki Model. The project is a continuation for The Vuosaari - In Other Words project realized during 2016-2018.
Vuosaari 21 has received in total 100 000 euros for the project. As a new collaborative model The Finnish Museum of Photography is working together with The KOM-theatre and Klockricketeatern, fascilitating participatory events and activities in Vuosaari.
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 their premises and work together with local residents and communities in various districts. The needs and wishes of locals as well as the artistic group determine the final shape and form of the events.
