Open Call for projects for finnish and estonian artists and creators and open for proposals for cross-disciplinary art expeditions to the Baltic Sea finished just before Christmas. We received 70 proposals, from which 5 were from estonian and 65 from finnish artists/groups of artists.
In the beginning of February the jury (director of the Turku University Research Institute of Archipelago Sea, prof. FT Ilppo Vuorinen, visual artist Terike Haapoja, artist-curator Juha Huuskonen and curator-producer Ulla Taipale) gathered together to choose the projects to be realised.
The selection of projects and artists is:
**Kaarnavene/ Bark Boat by Antti Laitinen
**Pelastusalus Silakka / Rescue Boat Baltic Herring crew: Teemu Takatalo, Tommi Taipale, Ossi Kakko, Riku Ritvanen
**Green Matters by Mia Mäkelä
**Sonic Seascape Terrace by Hanna Haaslahti & Marianne Decoster-Taivalkoski
