Release of the art project Queerkätkö 26.6.2017
Welcome to celebrate the release of the community art piece Queerkätkö (Queercache) by the artists Kalle Hamm and Dzamil Kamanger on Monday 26.6.2017 at 5 pm at the Helsinki City Museum (Aleksanterinkatu 16)!
Six persons based in Helsinki have taken part in the planning of the art piece and the piece is part of the project Finland 100 – in Rainbow Colors. Queerkätkö (Queercache) lends its form and structure from the popular geocache hobby. The idea in geocache is to look, with the help of GPS, for different caches. The queercaches tell about places, experiences or events in the Helsinki region that have been important for transpeople and for minorities within the queer minority, such as culture and languages minorities or persons with disabilities.
The piece will be released 26.6.2017 during the Helsinki Pride -festival on Monday 26.6.2017 at 5 pm at the Helsinki City Museum (Aleksanterinkatu 16). After the release the audience will be able to join in the search for the caches. You can also follow the project online here: https://www.facebook.com/queercache
The art project has been funded by Koneen Säätiö
