Interrupting the Everyday gives a voice to communities which usually stay invisible. 6 groups from NGOs and activist groups from Helsinki were invited together with designers to a workshop led by Tactical Tech to design their campaigns. The campaigns will be displayed on the Digiscreen network of Helsinki metro and tram lines during the Media Facades Helsinki festival. The campaigns aim to capture attention in a short amount of time, expose something that is invisible and interrupt people’s everyday understanding of their city.
The participating groups are multicultural women’s association Monika, the Finnish Federation of the Visually Impaired, Stadin Aikapankki time bank/ Time heals, Finnwatch, urban environment group Villi Stadi and the homeless support organisation VVA.
Interrupting The Everyday was presented in the framework of Connecting Cities' In/Visible City 2015 theme.
