About the Artists
Platform is an artist-run initiative founded in the year of 2000. Platform holds a project room and a residency programme in Vasa, Finland. The aim of Platform is to promote, show and be part of producing international contemporary art.

The events have periodically been based on different themes that served as a base for discussions as well as the content for the activities. Platform has dealt with themes such as Local-Global, questioning the role of contemporary art in the periphery; place and identity, investigating connections between site and personality; creative community, urban development and creativity.

The majority of Platform’s exhibitions and projects are results of their residency programme, that invites artists to produce a project or an exhibition in Vaasa.
