Ptarmigan operated in Tallinn from 2011-2014. This website exists as an archive of its activities during this time. We no longer maintain any presence in Tallinn, but some people involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary in Helsinki.
At the second Strange Meetings club, we will gather on the banks of the mighty Pirita to examine the role of trout fishing in art, culture and society. Local writer/thinker Scott Diel will provide a live demonstration of the craft, while we ask attendees to use their collective energies to summon trout to the surface. The event will be supplemented by readings from Richard Brautigan's immortal Trout Fishing in America (1967) while we will improvise collaborative performance/interpretations inspired by trout, fishing, and the Pirita river.
We'll assemble where you see the green arrow on this map at precisely 6:41 PM.
Bring food; this is a picnic.
