We are proud to present and warmly welcome our new CBM-students at Pori School of Art and Media. Welcome also to the CBM-students from Turku School of Economics!
Welcome to urban space was an experimental research and artistic study-project in May 2009, during which students and teachers built a space within Pori Kauppahalli, and held there lectures, workshops and did research and artistic projects. The experiment was noted in media, and warmly welcomed by personnel and customers in the Kauppahalli. Annamari Salmi has written a report titled "Luova työ ja tila - Tervetuloa kaupunkitilaan" of the experiment, which can be downloaded as a pdf file from Pori School of Art and Media webpages.

The ‘Alternative Economy Cultures’ (alt.econ.cult) programme on April 3rd & 5th brings together leading international and Finnish thinkers, cultural practitioners and activists, to present alternative economic visions.
The seminar aims to tackle not just the financial, but the social, cultural, institutional, human, material, emotional and intellectual forms of capital. Not just about individual gain, boosting, balancing or bail-outs, but common good, peer-to-peer, shared wealth and appropriate reward for effort involved.
Cultural production and social-networking, especially the digital online versions of the recent decade, have promoted new ideas of wealth, opportunity, scarcity, and exchange. Importantly, it also reminds us of old ones. Surrounding those ideas are developing practices, cultures and entrepreneurship.
Market-led capitalism and state-led socialism have both crashed in spectacular forms over the last 30 years. We are currently amid financial crisis where virtual credit affects physical and emotional health. These systems have proven to be unsustainable in their use of resources and people, and lead towards environmental and economic collapse.
Can we move forward in a sustainable and ethical way, leaving behind inequalities, appropriation and exploitation?See The Pixelache page for detailed program and more info

Share your special space, the space where you feel yourself to be yourself, the space that gives meaning to your life, the space where you want to be, the space you want to share.
1. Shoot maximum 15 sec video with your mobile or video camera –– download it to Muntila –site .
2. Give tags to your video. Tag the video with the feeling you attach to the space – joy, peace, rage, despair, courage, love etc. Tag it with some words that explain and narrate it to others – what you do there, what it means to you, where is it, what it is etc.
Example: Chaos, kitchen, morning, start of day.
Example: Enjoyment, intense, sharing, paradise, sauna
Example: Alive, street, café, people, mixing
The aim is to
1. Share the feelings and experience about the space that is important to you
2. Compose a dialogue in order to create a tense story or montage out of significant spaces people have
3. Create a social, co-created artistic (and scientific) montage out of various spaces
