Ptarmigan is no longer operating in Helsinki.

Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platfom until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as Ptarmigan during these years.

Some of the people who were involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary.


Gfyp2 carousel finished

GFYP is a free, monthly variety show at Ptarmigan Tallinn.  GFYP celebrates diversity, ecleticism, obscurity, and obfuscation.  Roughly each month we will bring together three or four acts from different disciplines.  At a GFYP you are likely to encounter music, performance art, presentations, video, discussions, and interventions.  

Each monthly manifestation of GFYP will take on a different form, the name divined via a mystical process that is one part Oulipo, one part I Ching.  The July 2011 event Germ Free Youth Party was the genesis, from which all subsequent titles will be generated.  Our hope is that as the title of the event evolves, the cultural cloud surrounding it will similarly develop.
