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.
Longtime Ptarmigan friends Avarus, formed in Tampere (Finland) in 2001, finally visit our Tallinn side for a mini-festival of their expanded universe: Avarus themselves and their various side projects and off-shoots, all melting into electronic and acoustic weirdness.
Featuring live musical acts:
Avarus (Lars Mattila, Roope Eronen, Jukka Räisänen, Tero Niskanen, Arttu Partinen)
Jukat (Tero Niskanen + Jukka Räisänen)
Kemmer (Lars Mattila)
