Ole Hyvä Sörnäinen

A community art project initiated by the City of Helsinki.

Visions for the Sörnäinen area painted or drawn on photographs. Trough open workshops at summer events in the area of Sörnäinen and workshops for specific groups not so highly represented during these events, 52 photographic collages were made for and exhibited at the Subwaystation of Sörnäinen during 2016-17.

The photographs were all from the Sörnäinen area, the recent ones photographed by young persons employed by the Youth Council of Helsinki and the historical pictures from the Helsinki City Museum.

The project was part of the larger Ole Hyvä Helsinki Project, where artists were invited to plan and facilitate community worksops to make photographic artworks for the billboards of subwaystations in Helsinki.
