In the June edition of At the Well, we talk about neighbours and dialogue. Ali Akbar Mehta talks about the cultural space created in the Museum of Impossible Forms in Kontula. In his text, Ilkka Arminen asks whether we truly understand our neighbours and what kind of social world they live in. We also discuss the thematic funding call on the theme of Neighbour Dialogues.
This June, the focus of At the Saari Well is on the residence application period starting in August and the related reforms. We will also meet Finnish translator Kristiina Drews, who shares some thoughts on her Saari Invited Artist period that begins in the autumn. The member of the staff to be introduced in this newsletter is already known to many: she is Pia Bartsch, the Saari Residence community artist. On Friday, 16 June at 4 pm, Other Spaces, currently in a group residency, will present their work to the public in the Pyhe village market place. At the Saari Well will take a short holiday in July and be back with new topics in August.
