Drawing together with Arka Paikka Group

Project about Loneliness

Arka Paikka: Anja, Eeppa, Henna, Joona, Kata, Nino, Näty, Rake, Mikko and Saija + many many more

Emma Fält and the Arka Paikka group use collaborative drawing as a means to explore ideas of loneliness and isolation with young people. This fascinating project began locally in 2013 and continues during the festival with an invitation for festival-goers and those passing to leave their mark on an ever-developing installation.

Arka paikka group has been created by young to fill their need to gather and run around together. The group has gotten together by outreach youth work. Arka Paikka is an open-minded group and its members have been meeting each other for couple of years now. Youngsters of the group are interested in live art and have been for example organizing the Varjo Festival in Kuopio 2011. During the time Arka Paikka has gotten new members and now meets in varying places such as the countryside or in the city doing various stuff.

About Loneliness is supported by the Regional Dance Centre of Eastern Finland and the North Savo Arts Council.
The project started in the year 2013 and continues year 2015 in Kuopio
