Ptarmigan is no longer operating in Helsinki.

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.


Thanks to everyone who came down from Helsinki for our opening event in Tallinn!  We're really thrilled to have such a beautiful space and to start building a bridge across the Gulf.  Additionally thanks to everyone who came to the Invisible Forces premiere and after-event.  It's great to see everyone back together and we love being in Oksasenkatu 11.  And finally, hooray for artHOP and Svamp, two ongoing projects that we hope will bring some new collaborations together.

In other news, we now have an ongoing project proposal form on this site which we ask you to use to submit any ideas you have for events, workshops, residencies, or other projects at Ptarmigan (in either city).  We will keep this form up forever, and hopefully we made it robust enough to cover everything you might wish to propose.  We are looking for three residencies in 2011 from Nordic or Baltic artists or other creative minds (sorry, Finland is ineligible), which will complete our KK Nord residency project.  If you have an idea (or know someone who would be good), then please apply!
