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.

Symposium is dead! Long live Symposium!
symposium : talk : lecture
01 November, 2011 00:00 20:00
presented by Eesti Humanitaarinstituudi Üliõpilasnõukogu



The Symposion series of philosophical discussions, organised in the past by the Philosophy Department of the Estonian Institute of Humanities, which has been resurrected and will be launched again. However, the event has moved out from the bohemian Kuku club and advanced its way up to the Toompea Hill to be closer to the ley lines of power. You will find us in Ptarmigan, Toom-Kooli 13, Tallinn.


Therefore, hearken all who have ears: Symposium will return, based on sheer enthusiasm, powerfully and persistently, once every fortnight with new and old individuals, a wider scope of topics, and a vivid fantasy. The team behind the events unites people in different EHI study programmes and Ptarmigan.


So, let’s all join hands and go together to take a friendly stroll along the fruitful landscapes of human mind and try to find some precious 'ahhaa'-moments. Our guide each time will be a knowledgable specialist well-versed in the their field or just an interesting person, who will make a casual presentation, followed by an open discussion.


All are welcome!


This event will take place, starting on 1.11 then every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month — 15.11 / 29.11 / 13.12 ...
