Ptarmigan is no longer operating in Helsinki.

Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platform 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/at Ptarmigan during these years.

Strange Meetings Club #002: Trout fishing in Pirita
meeting : fishing : celebration
03 July, 2013 00:00 18:41
part of project: Strange Meetings Club

At the second Strange Meetings club, we will gather on the banks of the mighty Pirita to examine the role of trout fishing in art, culture and society. Local writer/thinker Scott Diel will provide a live demonstration of the craft, while we ask attendees to use their collective energies to summon trout to the surface. The event will be supplemented by readings from Richard Brautigan's immortal Trout Fishing in America (1967) while we will improvise collaborative performance/interpretations inspired by trout, fishing, and the Pirita river.

We'll assemble where you see the green arrow on this map at precisely 6:41 PM.

Bring food; this is a picnic.
