Greetings from Pyhäjoki, Northern Finland!
Below is an event that currently goes on now which involves many commoning
strategies and practices within the mix of art-activism-research related to
environmental-energy issues within a small rural community and
transnational energy-power context.

Case Pyhäjoki – Artistic reflections on nuclear influence is a
trans-disciplinary expedition and production workshop in Pyhäjoki, Northern
Finland 1. - 11.8.2013. The sixth nuclear power plant of the country is
planned to be build in Pyhäjoki.
Participants of Case Pyhäjoki are for example artists, researchers and
activists. The programme has consisted of lectures, meeting local people
and expeditions of different kinds to get to know the area, nuclear power
as phenomenon, and what the power plant means to people. It reaches from
the local to national and global. What is artist's role in the changes in
the area and wider? How can we develop methods of creative work in a
complex and contested place of social tragedy and distress? How can we
communicate this through to wider networks?
As well as talking, thinking and research, there is also time for action.
The participants have created different types of engagements, prototype
events and experiments, reaching from a large 'thank you' sign for those
who refuse to sell their land to the nuclear power company, to the design
of a 'power sports day', a local fairytale, aswell as a mural painting with
local youth, a special karaoke playlist, and a DIY geiger counter building
The contributing presentations, workshops, expeditions and reflections are
documented online at casepyhajoki.info and facebook.com/casepyhajoki
See also links to the broadcasted lectures on the website. The final 'show
& tell' day is on Sunday at 14.00 in the local Parhalahti School, close to
the location of Hanhikivi, the actual site for the planned nuclear power
