Maku Project was a year long socially engaged Art, Migration and Intercultural Adaptation project based on Non-formal learning through the arts to help integrate immigrants into Finnish culture.
Funded by the Finnish Cultural Foundation - Häme fund
In cooperation with Hämeenlinna immigrant cultural services - Maku/Taste Project - aimed to help familiarize migrants into Hämeenlinna's cultural facilities and the Finnish culture. As an integral part of the project workshops, cultural visits and creative projects were carried out based on carefully chosen and targeted needs expressed by various immigrant cultural services but most importantly by the immigrant's themselves.
The project was coordinated and supervised by artists Edwina Goldstone & Jaakko Autere.
