Lumimaa projects are dedicated to investigations of society and ecology. This is realised in forms of research, writing, multidisciplinary art collaborations, music, videos, photography, journalism, performances etc. Concrete examples of some of these works in the portfolio-page.

The main artist and coordinator of projects in Lumimaa (meaning a land of snow – a utopia that melts away when touched) is Sakari Laurila. He is working with a constantly expanding collective of researchers, writers, artists, dancers, thinkers etc. mainly in Helsinki, Berlin, Limassol and Barcelona.

His main research collective is the Kammari Research Group. He is also the main coordinator of the Kammari Residency for artists, writers, musicians and researchers.
