  • Savon Radan ryhmä organizes activities along the historical Savo line


In 2010 art centre Saksala ArtRadius has started developing the LABYRINTH and the CHILDREN’S FOREST. Together with the AllaprimA Foundation AREFS taide ja kulttuuri ry supports the educational importance of this project. Both non-profit organizations are related to each other.

The LABYRINTH is not traditional in Finland, but this forest invites creating a mystical place where artists can explore their vision on the woods. During the WOOD/INSTALLATION SYMPOSIUM in spring of 2008 artists have added new elements in an artistic sense to the LABYRINTH.

In 2010 artists have added new installations to the special children's part of the LABYRINTH. Through visual art the location has been transformed and visitors will be invited to participate in the scene, created by artists. Children are invited to develop and realize their constructive imagination. Supplemented with (old) poetry, literature, fairy tales, theatre, songs and music a new ‘sound’ can created.
