TypoCraftHelsinki — Katja Hagelstam, Ilona Ilottu, Ilkka Kärkkäinen, Tuija Tarkiainen.
TypoCraftHelsinki is an organic platform for various events around typography. It consists of exhibitions, workshops and international collaborations taking place in a biennial cycle. We invite designers, craftsmen and artists to create new works with typography as the starting point. The objective of TCH is to arouse public interest in typography and letters in a multidisciplinary way, offering new perspectives. TCH offers its participants a forum to experiment, research, and collaborate across professional boundaries. The organic and scalable nature of TypoCraftHelsinki enables spontaneous collaborations to occur within a fairly short time frame.
The TypoCraftHelsinki team will present a selection of exhibitions and projects from their five-year mission to explore strange new worlds of typography, art and design. Theme of lecture: «A Typographic Expedition: Creating a collaborative platform for typographic experimentation in art, design and crafts».
