The Firefox

A cooperative project involving science, art, education and tourism in Utsjoki.

The Firefox is an educational and art event carried out by several different people and organisations in Utsjoki. It consisted of science and art events, of which the common themeis the Northern lights and their research.

Utsjoki is located on the northern part of Finland, close to the Norwegian border. Of its 600 residents, two thirds are Sámi.

The main goal of the project is to educate and to produce events that would touch and unite all of the villagers, from the Finnish to the Sámi and from the children to the elderly. Other goals included increasing knowledge and know-how regarding winter art, developing ways in which science and art could support each other, and to carry out a tourist event for Utsjoki.
