October–December 2017, designer Ulla Autio, director Heta Haanperä
A river of facing silk flowed through the daytime hall used for exemplary employment creating a tent, in which people could gather for a cup of coffee and to discuss their nature experiences. These desires and memories were transformed into tangible artworks, providing the perfect setting for discussing the park environment of the future. Designer Ulla Autio and director Heta Haanperä gathered ideas throughout the autumn to be used as basis for the Lähde! park concept. The ideation and planning carried out using the means of art included disabled people, those recovering from psychiatric problems and clients and employees of surrounding care facilities. The participants of pop-up workshops at the Ii health centre and Oulu City Library were also able to share their thoughts. Based on the ideas gathered, Ulla and Heta compiled design for a dream park that will instruct the implementation plan for the Lähde! park in the municipality of Ii.
