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.

Svamp - November 2011 (with Peter Nicholson)
workshop : improvisation : music : sound
19 November, 2011 00:00 14:30 - 17:00
Featuring artist: Peter Nicholson

After a short hiatus, the Svamp workshop/workgroup returns to Tallinn.  This month we are thrilled to have Peter Nicholson as guest-facilitator.  Peter is on a short residency in Tallinn and will bring his skills at collective improvisation to Estonia. Peter has been a member of the Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra and has performed in numerous open-form musical collaborations.

As always, we encourage both trained musicians and "non-musicians" to attend.  Please bring something to make sound with - an instrument or other object.  Amplification will be quite limited so please prepare accordingly (ie: don't bring a laptop). 

In the evening after the workshop, Peter will perform a free concert in Kodu Baar.
