Placemaking through Performance in the North

Aktiviteetti: EsitelmäJulkinen esitelmä tai kutsuttu puheenvuoro


This artist talk discusses a series of artistic performances related to placemaking. Placemaking is a concept often associated with urban environments and making them feel familiar. This concept is increasingly relevant when it comes to familiarizing oneself with nature and natural environments.
People are new to their communities and may be unfamiliar with nearby forests, parks, and river banks.
The countryside is becoming emptier as people move in search of job opportunities. Placemaking through artistic performance offers ways to connect with the local natural habitat and become familiar with the local environment through activities that have a low threshold for participation. These activities are based on creativity and the creative potential that everyone possesses. The artist talk will discuss the series of performances and analyze their impact and meaning
