Kammari Residency

Kammari spaces – the village residency

The Kammari village residency is a house in a mountain village of Cyprus for artists, thinkers and researchers. This research residence space will include an agricultural area as well as working- and accommodation spaces for the visitors. As a long-term plan, this residence space is to develop into a self-sufficient (in energy, water, food and wine) and international encounter and research space. Website of the residency: residency.kammari.org

Kammari spaces – the virtual space for documentation and debate

Another space connected to the contents of the residency is an online platform for documentation in the form of written text, sound and image, and forum for international debate on the topics. There will be published articles, documented events, discussions and performances from the residency, but also from projects that relate to the topics at hand.

Working group

The core working group of the Kammari village residency consists of cultural producer MA Sakari Laurila and researcher-activist Ph.M Niklas Toivakainen. Their collaboration started and got established in 2014-2015 when they co-produced and upheld the cultural space Kammari in Helsinki. In addition to the core group, a number of established researchers, philosophers, artists and scientists are part of the projects network. This continuously growing network is responsible for producing the contents of the project.

Administrative and financial issues are managed by the project producers via the non-profit organisation Living Philosophy and Arts Association in Helsinki of which the core group members are part of.
