The Adventures of Ville
When something is broken or misplaced in Startti, the culprit is known immediately: It is Ville, the imaginary pet piggy of Startti! Dramaturge Jukka Heinänen and comics artist Jyrki Mäki became well acquainted with Ville during their social art residencies. The results included a short Christmas-themed film and comics that were published in the Iin Iloinen Viesti magazine.
Visiting Santa’s Village Christmas Magazine
Christmas was already in the air at Startti in October and November! During the residencies of Jukka Heinänen and Jyrki Mäki, the story of an Eskimo who gets lost in the Arctic Circle was developed around the table at Startti. Each participant could contribute to the creation in a way that best suited them: one was focusing on the writing, while others worked collectively on the illustration for the story.
