Fiskars and it's offerings

I am educating myself about Fiskars from around the web but right now I am investigating some of the makers in the village. 
Some websites need some tlc.. But must remember I am going as Artist not Admin wizzard..

Daylight in Finland

Looking up daylight hours for when I will be in Finland for my Artist residency. There will be about 5 - 5.5 hours of daylight each day. But my main concern is not so much the light as: will I be warm enough? I hardly have any warm clothes and no budget to get any. So here is my plan: I will rely on clothing loans. After all I am not going to be there for a fashion show but to play with creative ideas..

Something that I am finding very difficult in the lead up to this residency is the burden of responsibility. Just taking a glimpse at the events of the world it is hard to picture myself not keeping in mind the hardship that so many people face today. Somehow it is important that while the Art happens there is also room for respect and bearing witness.
