Culture Push collaborated with YKON, a Helsinki-based arts collective, to practice "Utopia," linking the fantastical and the pragmatic to bring about social, political and artistic change. Artists and participants field-tested different "Practical Utopias" through a series of experiences, prompts, and gatherings woven into everyday life. Participants were offered new possibilities outside normal routines and given an opportunity to understand people, the city, and civic life from a new perspective, transforming everyday life into a source of inspiration.
