If it’s true that “100 years of history and change in Suvilahti area represents well the transformation of Helsinki into a metropolis” (architect Sari Schulman), then by observing its development as part of the plan for the new city we can probably foresee Helsinki’s future. With this event we want to participate in the collective process related to the metamorphosis of Suvilahti area into a new cultural centre, at the heart of Helsinki’s new core (Emerald Plan).
The event, like others already organized by Namastic Art Collective, is a mixture of high art, underground culture, and conversations around contemporary art and the conception of a new world based on the research and use of new energy sources, on openness, and on a healthy relation between individual and society. Also a specific interest of Namastic Art Collective is to delve into new relations between the fields of art, economy, politics, and society.
The Irresistible District event
We offer the occasion for the public to experience the merging of three ambiances: the contemplation of artworks, the entertainment of music, the information about new energy sources and the development of patterns in urban space also in other countries. Most of the artists invited will create new artworks with the theme of energy sources, transformation and paradigm shift.
