Varissuo 2.0 is an art project which was conducted by Together Association in 2019 and 2020. Its goal was to tell stories of Varissuo with its people’s own voices. In 2019, three professional artists, Sanni Saarinen (photography), Veera Lehtola (video and literary art), and Tommi Parkko (poetry) contributed to the project which has involved some 50 Varissuo residents altogether. As a result, a blog with the name Maailman menoa Varissuolla (‘Ways of the World in Varissuo’) was created. A variety of different artistic media was exhibited at the Main Library of Turku in July and August 2020. In the scope of this project, the literary art group published a poetry antology named “Vahingossa Varissuolla”. The booklet can be purchased in our offices for 5 euros.
Project Varissuo 2.0 has its own Facebook-page. Its implementation was sponsored by the Varsinais-Suomi Regional Fund of the Finnish Cultural Foundation, Arts Promotion Centre Finland, and the Cultural Board of Turku City.
