A sum of EUR 1 million is allocated for the budget to be shared between eight major districts.
The Pop Up arts workshop of the project group of Turku Art Hall
Summary of the plan
The Pop Up arts workshop of the project group of Turku Art Hall is an agile unit making art workshop materials and a professional instructor available in your place by appointment! The art workshop can visit your area/office in connection with an event/action, regularly at an agreed time or based on invitations. Workshops can be organised for groups registered in advance or for everyone passing by. The workshops are suitable for people of any age who are interested in observing and commenting on the environment.
People can pick up a task (connected with their area of residence) from the art workshop and the tools needed for completing it, where necessary. Implementation is creative and free, and everyone can view their area of residence/surrounding area with open eyes and describe it in the way they want. The participants will receive the outcome after having returned the task and accessories to the workshop instructor. For example, the art workshop hands out photography tasks to be completed using one’s own mobile phone or a pinhole camera that can be borrowed from the workshop. The participants will receive the outputs immediately either as a printed image or as a genuine framed photograph if they have used the pinhole camera. The workshop instructor will send the photograph to the workshop participants later. The participants can leave a copy of their photographs to the workshop instructor based on their consent, and the photographs will later be featured in an exhibition either digitally or in a show window gallery in the workshop area, for example.
