About Silence Project

Most Innovative Social Art Initiative – Europe

<p>The Silence Project is an initiative by the Finnish artist Nina Backman that aims to connect the work of freely operating artists with cultural and social entities in order to study, share and experiment with the concept of silence in relation to new urban realities.</p> <p>The Silence Project was inspired by the traditional Finnish concept of “freedom to roam” or “everyman’s right”, jokamiehenoikeus, which allows free access to forests, waterways and the right to collect natural products, regardless of ownership of land. This is a right that symbolizes the very essence of Nordic culture, namely, the close relationship with nature where silence and space is omnipresent. As an exhibition program, the Silence Project examines how our experience of silence and space has come to shape culture as well as individual identities. In a time of mega-cities the availability of free space, and therefore silence, is diminishing, in turn becoming a luxury. The Silence Project aims to facilitate a forum which serves to preserve and forward the inception of “Silence Space Oases” in the urban environment.</p> <p>More information:<br /><br /></p>
