Poet Timo Harju and sociology student Leena Oikarinen, Vaala, immigrants, June 2017
The Towards Dreams summer course cast an eye on future dreams using poetry, photography and the treasure map method. Sociology student Leena Oikarinen designed and directed the course as part of her studies, with poet Timo Harju leading the participants on a day trip to nature. During the trip, the participants searched for natural elements that reflected themselves, wrote poetry and jointly compiled an “ear poem”.
