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.
GFYP is a free, monthly variety show at Ptarmigan Tallinn. GFYP celebrates diversity, ecleticism, obscurity, and obfuscation. Roughly each month we will bring together three or four acts from different disciplines. At a GFYP you are likely to encounter music, performance art, presentations, video, discussions, and interventions.
Each monthly manifestation of GFYP will take on a different form, the name divined via a mystical process that is one part Oulipo, one part I Ching. The July 2011 event Germ Free Youth Party was the genesis, from which all subsequent titles will be generated. Our hope is that as the title of the event evolves, the cultural cloud surrounding it will similarly develop.
