m-cult’s collaborative media art residencies bring artists to create new work in dialogue with individuals and communities of the Maunula neighbourhood of northern Helsinki.

The project is realised within the residency and commission modules of CAPP, Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme, an ambitious transnational project focusing on collaborative and socially engaged art, supported by Creative Europe. Locally, the project is part of the ’Helsinki model’ art pilots in Helsinki suburbs, supported by Helsinki Cultural Office.

In 2016-2018, m-cult has co-produced altogether 16 projects by 24 artists whose work involves processes of media and collaboration. Together with locals, the artists have worked on collective utopias, proposed approaches to local influencing, and created  interventions in media and physical environments. The collaborations have involved over 300 participants and groups, and reached over 15.000 event visitors.

This site is in Finnish, dedicated to our local audiences and participants. Check the documentation pages (the videos are in English) – and read more about our projects in English on the CAPP website!
