EFFECTS OF CULTURE
* Culture increases individual pleasure, happiness and wellness.
The presence of culture adds a positive image to a town or neighborhood and creates
more satisfaction with environment.

* Culture unites the society.
Cultural institutes, like community centers and schools, in which people from a
neighborhood active participate stimulate the social cohesion in that area.
Participation in cultural activities leads to more self awareness, more social contacts,
and more safety feelings.
Young people which participate in cultural activities are less criminal.

* Culture benefits the economy.
A region with high cultural standard is more attractive for a high educated, creative
population to settle, this influences the grow of employment.
Cultural facilities, services and activities are bringing more economic benefit by
employment in cultural institutes, attracting tourists and creative industry.
VIA.ARS.NATURA                                      the way to art and nature

VISION
The program VIA.ARS.NATURA will be an overall and wide-range program of nationally and
internationally significant artworks along old (historic) routes and paths in the countryside.

These art works will be grown or made from the ingredients/elements of, or specifically
related to the landscape and geology of the area. The use of these different components,
like forests, plants, peat, earth, rock(s) and water will visualize the characteristics of nature
and authentic roads in South-East Finland.
http://www.arefs.org/projects/via-ars-natura.html
VIA.ARS.NATURA the way to art and nature
The works in the project VIA.ARS.NATURA can be created for the short or long term - as
temporary or permanent works - integrated and site specific.

The area can be enriched with long-term planted and growing artwork, designed to fit in
with the existing native trees and other plants.

There are many possibilities for these kinds of art works like trees being woven, pleached,
grafted and pruned into living sculpture.

Areas of trees and/or bushes planted to form graphic shapes.
Grass used to create visual images.
Waterways altered with stone and trees.
Earthworks and land shaping (landscaping) used as constructive elements.
Landscape structures and planting which can give direction to the visitor.

Temporary works can may be pre-existing, commissioned or invited for exhibition and
relate specifically to the landscape or geology of Etelä-Savo, for instance sculptures that
could be sited to draw attention to the agriculture or glacial history in the area.

Conservation, bio-diversity and habitat are also items that can be included in the art
works.

OBJECTIVES OF THE MAIN PROGRAM

AREFS taide ja kulttuuri ry is planning VIA.ARS.NATURA, the way to art and nature a
program to develop new facilities and actions in the countryside and to develop a
network of people living near old (historic) routes in the hinterland of the main roads
and start a co-operation with professional (international) artists.

The artistic view by foreign artists will increase the expertise skills and knowledge of
the people of the rural area, and will also widen the perspective on the own
surroundings.

Through the program, the cultural environment will undergo a development initiative
and will also have an influence on (international) visitors and travelers with cultural
and ecological interests.

There are many possibilities for these kinds of art works like trees being woven, pleached, grafted and pruned into living sculpture. Areas of trees and/or bushes planted to form graphic shapes. Grass used to create visual images. Waterways altered with stone and trees. Earthworks and land shaping (landscaping) used as constructive elements. Landscape structures and planting which can give direction to the visitor. Temporary works can may be pre-existing, commissioned or invited for exhibition and relate specifically to the landscape or geology of Etelä-Savo, for instance sculptures that could be sited to draw attention to the agriculture or glacial history in the area. Conservation, bio-diversity and habitat are also items that can be included in the art works.
