Ptarmigan is a non-profit initiative to house projects that exist outside of the realm of the traditional. We seek to provide space for adventurous and challenging scenarios, whether it be performance, visual art, sound, interactive work, or other ideas.

Ptarmigan existed as a physical space in the Vallila area of Helsinki from July 2009 through January 2011. At the moment, Ptarmigan is not connected to a physical space but is functioning as a mobile curatorial project.  We are excited to be partnering with Oksasenkatu 11 in Töölö and XL Art Space in Kaisaniemi, two places which will serve as a home for many of our events and projects.   In 2011 we will continue to operate our Nordic/Baltic artist-in-residency programme, schedule public events and develop our creative community. Also, please check out our new satellite location in Tallinn.

Current co-directors of Ptarmigan are: James Andean, Marek Pluciennik, Amal Laala, Christine Langinauer, Sari Kivinen.
