Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platform 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/at Ptarmigan during these years.

A multimedia mobile phone is becoming the foremost social media tool to capture personal documentary content about almost anything that captures one's interest and can be shared with friends, family and the public. In this multimedia event, examples will be shown of content that has been primarily captured by a multimedia mobile phone and shared online. Examples include digital stories that reflect multicultural activities up and down in Finland. Some of the stories have be sourced from the Net, some of them were created by the presenter and some of them were produced by twelve year olds that reside in Tampere. These youngsters produced these stories as part of an EU funded project - the Mobile Literacy Programme (MobiLeap). The event will be accompanied by music DJ'd by Chivhanga.
