Common Ground on Kalliokatu
Lönnström Art Museum and artists Tellervo Kalleinen (b. 1975) and Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen (b. 1971) will conduct a community art project. Running from 2018 to 2020, the project is called Common Ground – A Public Space Game. Common Ground will take place in Rauma at Kalliokatu 28–30.
We are currently looking for Rauma residents to play the game. Players will be selected so that they represent not only the age distribution of the town*, but also the variety of citizens in Rauma. The call will be open online at keskustelupuisto.fi until the end of September 2018.
Why was Kalliokatu chosen for the site of Common Ground? “It emerged in our conversations with the Greenspace Services of the City of Rauma. We inspected the site along with more than ten other places in Rauma. We were interested in the area at Kalliokatu because of its central location and the proximity of housing, and the fact that the site is currently not a park,” the artists said.
The site at Kalliokatu will be converted during summers of 2019 and 2020 according to plans created by the 36 Rauma residents to be chosen in October by the artists.
