Sightseeing Uncertainty

is a participatory event that we are touring with in March 2021.
Travelling more than 3,000 km around Finland.
Offering a total of 15+ events in 13 different locations.

 Here are questions that we bring with us:

What makes a community?

How do we create conditions where people can really hear and see each other?

How to make someone see the world through different eyes?

How to facilitate a process based on ‘not knowing’, exploring uncertainty?

We would like to explore a different narrative from lock-down’s isolation and fear - stepping into a safe space with people we do not know. During this approximately 3-hour long event we start with ‘planting’ (gathering, recognizing members of our temporary community, introducing the idea), then through ‘walking’ (guiding a silent walk either indoors or outdoors, exploring the surrounding each through their individual experience, moving together as a group) come back to ‘harvesting’ (reflection, games for sharing, feedback). At the end of the event we are going to prepare a communal meal and offer each group a seedling, finding a way to take care of it and make it thrive. 

Instead of giving answers to our participants we facilitate a process, a lived experience of the unknown. We are opening for deep reflections by asking deep questions and document where it brings us on our journey. We are inspired by village life, social clubs, rituals, talkoot, somatic practices, Black Mountain College, sensorial theatre and live art.

The event is free and open for everyone who can hear our call. Each event happens in a corona-safe setting, with around 20 pre-registered participants. In collaboration with local venues.
