Tuuli has strong experience is facilitating workshops on material making as well as more more abstract, performative experiences. The latter deals with place, perception, psychogeographical mapping and drifting. The workshops have taken place in contexts of community groups, art events and university education. The key thought is to treat participants as artists with equally valid perspectives and ways of finding a way in the new environment that the workshop provides. Examples:
Can you see what I see? A workshop and performance where participants perform and make places perform with them. The workshop is a journey into experience of the other. Together we try to see through the eyes of another person. Let a stranger take you to their world of details around us. The insignificant can open up a universe of memories.
