Everyday stories and the experiences of “ordinary people” could/should have a more prominent role when shared futures are being made. Together with city residents, planners, developeres and decision makers need to notice and appreciate the importance of the everyday experience of local surroundings.
That is the idea behind the occasional collective walks organised by Narratiimi. Through walking in the company of others, we encourage Helsinki residents to share their knowledge and creativity. Together on walks we all get to know our rapidly changing home town better. We want to deepen the connections between people and environments, and find ways of carefully documenting what people find precious.
