Collecting experiences of Kalasatamassa

We will be in Kalasatama to talk to the area’s residents, users and entrepreneurs.
We will collect experiences and information about the area and hopes and visions for its future, the “folklore” of the area.
What we have collected will be used to build the relationship between the hunter-gatherers and the area and its other users.
Contact us if you want to share your experiences with us.

Preparing for camp life

During these weekends we will already try out living as hunter-gatherers full time in Kalasatama.
We will make preparations like building the camp and testing whether what we have planned works in practice.
To participate you should have taken part in at least one workshop.
You can participate part of the time – for example, for a day and a night, or go home for the nights – or the whole weekend.
You can find more detailed instructions here closer to the event.

The camp

We will live as hunter-gatherers full time, moving in and around Kalasatama, with a base camp where it’s possible to stay overnight.
Part of the group will always be there, but you can participate the time you want from two days to the whole period. You can plan ahead (for example to participate on the weekends, or to go home for the night) or spontaneously take a break when you need one.
To participate you should have taken part in at least one previous event.
You can find more detailed instructions here closer to the event.
