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.
Sketch Night #5! Yeah!!! The idea is simple: we get together and draw. Anyone (any skill level) who wants to come and do some drawing in a relaxed, non-competitive atmosphere is welcome to join us. (Don't forget to bring your own drawing materials, and feel free to bring snacks to share.)
And by anyone, we mean anyone. This time Rachel's son will be coming along, and we want to invite anyone who has a kid/nephew/niece/sibling who likes to draw to bring them along. As Pablo Picasso said, “Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up.” We'll also screen a YouTube playlist of cool language-free cartoons that the kids (big and small) can watch in the film room, and anyone who wants a bit more quiet can draw in the adjacent main room. Join us!
