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.
Do you have an idea that you know you are never going to actually get around to doing?
Come to the Idea Liberation Zone and present it! The Idea Liberation Zone is a public forum where anyone can present their un-started or unfinished ideas. The stage is yours to tell us about it, or you can just come to listen and enjoy food, drink and music. Your idea will be made “open source” tonight, so you must be comfortable with allowing others to take it and make it fly.
Idea Liberation Zone is the introductory event of Done Lab, a project of resident artist Agnieszka Pokrywka. Done Lab is a temporary, experimental space focused on making undone things done. A series of activities will comprise Done Lab, for anyone who struggles with unfinished letters, art, relationships, projects, writings, crafts, academic work, or other not suitably implemented ideas. Done Lab events will create supportive environments to encourage making new sense out of the unfinished past in the reflective context of the present.
