Save Vartiosaari

VARTIOSAARI is an unique island in eastern part of Helsinki inner archipelago. There is ongoing city planning for Vartiosaari, we want to save Vartiosaari as a recreational area! First Save Vartiosaari – Art Project was started in 2012.

Taidetta saareen! Save Vartiosaari – Art Project V June 5 – October 2, 2016.

Support preserving Vartiosaari as a recreational area – experience the unique nature of Vartiosaari through artworks. Save Vartiosaari Art Project is now organized for the fifth time. The future of Vartiosaari is uncertain because the spatial plan by Finland’s Uusimaa Regional Council and the Helsinki City plan are currently under revision. Hence this art project has arisen to support preserving Vartiosaari as a recreational area.

Schedule: Guided tours are arranged with the performances: opening on June 5, 2016 at 1-4 pm and guided tours on August 21 12-3 pm and on October 2 at 2-5 pm. There are free of charge rowing boat trips for the events. Follow the updates on Facebook.
