On June 16-19, Jeanne van Heeswijk and collaborators will create a Public Faculty in Helsinki's Vallila district to address the question of How to care for the future?
The Public Faculty is a 4-day intervention to stir up conversations and sketch forms of collective action in public space. Each day, the event is located near distinct rock formations in Vallila. The geological time embedded in the rocks that the city was carved of acts as inspiration to imagine futures at the end of time.
What do you think of future, care, commitment and togetherness? You are welcome to come talk with us and together we will embody these themes as part of four public gatherings called Public Faculties in Vallila between 16th to 19th of June - each day from 15.00pm to 19.00pm.
You are welcome to join us at any time during these hours at these locations:

Mon 17.6. 15-19 Being with / Hollolanpuisto / Mäkelänkatu 35
Tue 18.6. 15-19 Becoming / Corner of Lemuntie and Elimäenkatu 23
