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.
'Guesting' is a series of live events focused on encouraging cross-pollination between creative individuals and collectives. Guesting live art events began in 2013, to date we have had three events in which artists and arts organisers from various backgrounds came together to share experiences of artistic production and to forge new connections. Each live event involved merging together conversation with performance elements.
The word 'guesting' can indicate: 1) appearing as a guest; 2) participating as a guest; 3) entertaining as a guest. In 2014 Ptarmigan will continue the Guesting series.
