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.
We are founding the first open Hackerspace (*) in the capital region of Finland. (* or "Makerspace", "FabLab", or whatever you want to call it!)
We are now recruiting more members who are willing to pay 15-25€/month, or whatever it takes to rent a reasonable work space in Helsinki. The more members we get, the cheaper it will be for each!
We are, among other DIY-projects, interested about applying electronics to various ideas, not just traditional hardware hacker stuff, but also in artistic and other sectors, like 3D-printing and so on. But of course it depends on our coming members, which kind of direction Helsinki Hacklab will eventually take.
