From the 28th of September to the 26th of October the contemporary demonstrator space PORIS was developed as a part of the demonstrator project in the city of Pori, Finland. Here 2000 of the city’s citizens shared their ideas and wishes for the development of the city centre of Pori.

Residency artist and urbanist Jonas Büchel worked at the space for 5 weeks and got to know the deepest layers of Pori by involving citizens, organisations and cultural actors. With his 20 years´ experience in participatory projects, he made some remarks of our town.

The 28th of November Jonas Büchel returned to Pori to give his final report and evaluation, where he shared what kind of potential culture could offer the city of Pori as a strategic focus point. Now you have the full opportunity to watch his final report and evaluation.
