location of the art centre
Finland is the northernmost country of the European Union and has a long border
     with Russia.
The population is 5.500.000 and the size is 338.000 km² (3x Ohio)
Finland is wellknown by its high technology, the excellent education system and is
     one of the least corrupt countries of the world.
Finland has an industrial economy based on abundant forest resources, capital
     investments, and high technology. Traditionally, Finland has been a net
     importer of capital to finance industrial growth; in recent years it has become a
     net exporter of capital. Finland has one of the best performing economies in
     the EU and Europe. (http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/bgn/3238.htm)

The art centre is in the Eastern part of Finland about 200 km from the Russian border
     (400 km from St Petersburg and 250 km from Helsinki)
The so called ‘lake district’ has about 87.000 lakes and Haukivuori is situated near
     Lake Kyyvesi.
The village Haukivuori has 2.300 inhabitants and since January 1st 2007 it is part of
     the regional capital Mikkeli (40 km South)

The art centre is situated on Saksalanharju a ridge on top of the biggest monolith of
     Europe. The area is fruitful and already early in history people start to settle.
Saksala area was owned by the Russian officer Hjalmar Bondsdorff, he sold the area
     in 1913 to the municipal of Haukivuori
The main building is build in 1920 as a rural old people’s home.

In 2003 the Dutch artist Marja de Jong has started the art centre Saksala ArtRadius
     in the old buildings.

Around the art centre are fields, orchards, forests and the distance to lake is about 4
      kilometres.
This rural area has no heavy industry.
Agriculture and forestry are the main activities.
Mikkeli is the governmental centre and there are universdities, Higher Vocational
      Education and other education.

The cultural level is high and during summer there are many festivals in the field of
     music, opera, ballet, theater and art exhibitions.
The summer is warm and sunny with long days.
The winter is cold and there is always snow.
The ridge Saksalanharju is situted on the biggest monolith of Europe.

Rregistration number:
MOR-Y06-049
Types: drumlin
Height: 168 meter
Length: 5 499 meter
Width: 1 600 meter




Saksalanharju is together with the original
village of Haukivuori = Haukivuori kirkonkylä
an official protected nature heritage,
because of the drumlin, the landscape and
the historical value.

The area on the monolith and around is full of
swamps and still peat cutting is important.
The swamp fields are remarkable areas in
the landscape. When the roots of old trees
are put on piles it gives a mysterious feeling.
In the swamps in Tuulimiemi are the anual
volleyball games.

Agriculture and forestry are the main
activities on Saksalanharhuju.
The hill is one of most fruitfully of the area.

Mikkelipuisto
Mikkelipuisto Park is an entity under construction right near the centre of Mikkeli, and the aim is to turn it into the
leading centre for horticultural tourism in Eastern Finland. In the park join the area's varied nature, the recreation
areas and the model gardens planned and built by companies. Together these will constitute a high-class visiting
attraction for amateurs, professionals, and tourists. The total area of the park that will develop on the lands of the
town amounts to 42 hectares.

children’s forest




The children’s forest is a developing area in the yard of Saksala ArtRadius. On
several places children can build their own constructions to play in it. The intention
is to create a world where children of different cultures can exchange their
experiences of building. The children’s forest will be a permanent area to play, to
work, to change and to construct.
Together with artists new ideas can develop.
Artists in the artist-in-residence program can participate in the project.
This project has been funded by Arts Council Finland,

  • 2. location of the art centre Finland is the northernmost country of the European Union and has a long border with Russia. The population is 5.500.000 and the size is 338.000 km² (3x Ohio) Finland is wellknown by its high technology, the excellent education system and is one of the least corrupt countries of the world. Finland has an industrial economy based on abundant forest resources, capital investments, and high technology. Traditionally, Finland has been a net importer of capital to finance industrial growth; in recent years it has become a net exporter of capital. Finland has one of the best performing economies in the EU and Europe. (http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/bgn/3238.htm) The art centre is in the Eastern part of Finland about 200 km from the Russian border (400 km from St Petersburg and 250 km from Helsinki) The so called ‘lake district’ has about 87.000 lakes and Haukivuori is situated near Lake Kyyvesi. The village Haukivuori has 2.300 inhabitants and since January 1st 2007 it is part of the regional capital Mikkeli (40 km South) The art centre is situated on Saksalanharju a ridge on top of the biggest monolith of Europe. The area is fruitful and already early in history people start to settle. Saksala area was owned by the Russian officer Hjalmar Bondsdorff, he sold the area in 1913 to the municipal of Haukivuori The main building is build in 1920 as a rural old people’s home. In 2003 the Dutch artist Marja de Jong has started the art centre Saksala ArtRadius in the old buildings. Around the art centre are fields, orchards, forests and the distance to lake is about 4 kilometres. This rural area has no heavy industry. Agriculture and forestry are the main activities. Mikkeli is the governmental centre and there are universdities, Higher Vocational Education and other education. The cultural level is high and during summer there are many festivals in the field of music, opera, ballet, theater and art exhibitions. The summer is warm and sunny with long days. The winter is cold and there is always snow.
  • 3. The ridge Saksalanharju is situted on the biggest monolith of Europe. Rregistration number: MOR-Y06-049 Types: drumlin Height: 168 meter Length: 5 499 meter Width: 1 600 meter Saksalanharju is together with the original village of Haukivuori = Haukivuori kirkonkylä an official protected nature heritage, because of the drumlin, the landscape and the historical value. The area on the monolith and around is full of swamps and still peat cutting is important. The swamp fields are remarkable areas in the landscape. When the roots of old trees are put on piles it gives a mysterious feeling. In the swamps in Tuulimiemi are the anual volleyball games. Agriculture and forestry are the main activities on Saksalanharhuju. The hill is one of most fruitfully of the area.
