Hunter-gatherers

What is it like to live in the city with a Stone Age mindset? What kind of “nature” is it if you look at it like a forest or a mammoth steppe? What kind of spirits and creatures move there? What is its map like when it consists of stories? How can you survive on what the city has to offer?

Hunter-gatherers is a communal experiment and a utopian art project where a band of urban hunter-gatherers live in Kalastama, Helsinki from 29 July to 4 August 2024. Anybody can join.
Children and families are also welcome. Participation is free.

You can visit the camp and participate in its life just by coming by between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
If you are planning to come with a larger group (more than 5), we hope that you let us know in advance.

You can also join the Hunter-gatherers on their outings in the area between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Let us know that you’re coming in advance or call to ask where to find us on the day you’re coming.

During the camp (we answer from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.): +358 41 586 2252
Before the camp: +358 45 671 1047 or info@hoyhentamo.fi

You can also use these numbers if you need more information, for example if you have special needs we should be aware of (more about accessibility here).
