The main venue for Media Facades Festival 2013 will be Vaasankatu in Kallio, Eastern Central Helsinki. The notoriously-famed street, the “Knife Boulevard” is currently undergoing interesting changes, with art and culture activists living side by side with the traditional porn shops and bars. In Summer 2013, Vaasankatu is in experimental use as a pedestrian street.
All of the Media Facades 2013 projects will be presented in Kallio around Vaasankatu, which starts from Vaasanaukio, locally known as “Amfetamin Square” and ends at Fleminginkatu. Also located on the street are some of the local key partners of MFF 2013: the design collective Made in Kallio, the activist residency V96 and the local community television Stadi.TV.
