Varjakka, the sweet home of “Keho on Dacha”, has won the status of the best village in Northern Finland!
We’ve been most lucky to celebrate it with the beautiful local community. The news of the victory came right ahead of the traditional local harvest festival.
The people of Varjakka have been warmly greeting artists from different parts of the globe, giving them inspiration and actively participating in community art-making and site-specific cultural activities. This is a deserved win. And not just for Varjakka, but for all the villages out there which engage with art.
