Passion -seminar
20.5.
14:00-18:00
Sampo Hall
Finnish speakers representing a wide range of different interests will participate in the Passion seminar to talk about creative work and standing up for creativity: How are new ideas created? How to maintain your passion in spite of everyday routines and setbacks? How is an endless desire to learn new things born? How to focus on the essential and how to inspire those around you to create something significant together? The Sampo Auditorium will be filled to the brim with enthusiasm and passion that will surely rub off on the audience as well.

The seminar will be held in Finnish



Oiva Toikka
 
Professor Oiva Toikka is one of the greatest names in Finnish glass. His imaginative, rich and bold glass art deviates from the streamlined aesthetic of Nordic design. He has worked in the performing arts for as long as he has in glass. The Birds collection is Toikka’s best-known work. He has enjoyed an international career and received numerous awards, among them Lunning Prize, Pro Finlandia Medal, World Glass Now 85 Award, Kaj Franck Design Prize and the Prince Eugen Medal.


Meiju Niskala

Meiju Niskala (b.1978) is performance- and media-artist, writer and everyday explorer. During workhours she takes friendpictures with unknown citizens, collects notepapers and shopping lists from the streets and tries to wander and get actively lost. Her main interests are public spaces, dicetheories, games, plays and borders between society and a self. She teaches in several schools and universities theories of performance art, interactive dramaturgy, creative writing, site spesifc- and street art. From time to time she organizes tours to most romantic places and holds bingotours for grannies at the local busslines. On the moment she is working with the cross-media and interactive concept called You are (here), which consentrates on experimental and psychogeographical sides of the cities. Her main goal is to create creative tools to use the city as amusementpark in our everyday live.
