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.
We are founding the first open Hackerspace (*) in the capital region of Finland. (* or "Makerspace", "FabLab", or whatever you want to call it!)
We are now recruiting more members who are willing to pay 15-25€/month, or whatever it takes to rent a reasonable work space in Helsinki. The more members we get, the cheaper it will be for each!
We are, among other DIY-projects, interested about applying electronics to various ideas, not just traditional hardware hacker stuff, but also in artistic and other sectors, like 3D-printing and so on. But of course it depends on our coming members, which kind of direction Helsinki Hacklab will eventually take.
