The two co-organisers of the festival realized the workshops.

We are the people, this is the place

Liverpool's famous community media project tenantspin co-produces a project for Media Facades festival with local residents in Helsinki and Liverpool.

The project is realized via workshops focusing on local people's conceptions of normality and citizenship. It is led by artist Alex Harrison together with community programme leader Laura Yates and tenantspin members Ian McNeill and Lucy Gonzales.

In May 18-24, tenantspin 2010 conducted the first workshop in Kontula, Eastern Helsinki, with participants of the Symppis community centre. After Kontula, a workshop with the same issues will be realised in Liverpool's Anfield/Breckfield. The resulting programmes build a bridge between two neighbourhoods and will premiere during the Media Facades 2010 festival.
