Event description

An-ordinary-city is an independent programme, aimed at sharing knowledge and promoting a better awareness about our cities and our urban environment through cultural media and action.

For the Kallio event: https://www.facebook.com/events/2125165371062790/

Movie: Exit through the gift shop

The story of how an eccentric French shop-keeper and amateur film-maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner. The film contains footage of Banksy, Shephard Fairey, Invader and many of the world's most infamous graffiti artists at work.

In English:

Last summer Vaasanpuistikko square was painted together with local people to revitalize the market. Finnish winter has unfortunately left its mark in the piece, so it's time to fix it together.

A painting workshop open to all will be held on Thursday 10 May from 11am to 16pm. In case of a bad weather, the workshop can be transferred to another day. Any changes to the workshop program will be announced on this Facebook event.

At the workshop there will be professional street artists and street art instructors present to guide painters of all ages. Everyone is welcome to join the workshop and no previous experience is required. The tools to be used in painting are paint rollers and brushes. Participants are welcome to join the workshop at any point of the day and paint as long as they want. Children under the age of 8 can take part with a parent.

The workshops are free of charge and we will provide the participants with the paints, brushes and protective gear.

Some ideas for the piece were collected from the citizens throughout the spring, and based on them three artists created drafts for people to vote. The piece by Laura Lehtinen, ‘Party By The Sea’ was chosen as the winner from the three drafts. Read more about the piece: http://www.helsinkiurbanart.com/en/coming-soon-kallio-street-art-square/

    Hi CHAU NGUYEN (Chau-1) - great you are doing this again but you scheduled it at the same time as another event, on a day that already has three events! The system allows this to happen because there could certainly be a reason where it's feasible, but I can't really see how this is going to work, to screen a film during another workshop that is happening.

    Can you choose another date for this ASAP and I can change it in the database (as there isn't currently a feature to edit the date from published events)?

      I have to bring my own projector for this screening. For the sound system, John W. Fail told me that there is a sound system there.
      Hopefully it will work out this time. Welcome to join the screening. The entrance fee is optional.

      Yeah, the PA speakers are mounted on the ceiling though they will be sideways to the screen, so it might be a little weird. If it's easy for you to bring your own speakers again that might be best. Also the mixer for the PA is in the corner so maybe it's not the best place for your computer audio cable to reach to!

    The event will be organized today. Nothing changes.

    Hope to see someone there.
