The exhibition My Home the River of docent, DA Mari Mäkiranta pictures what a group of river activists wrote and painted on a power plant in Northern Finland. The paintings created in the power plant environment urge and demand; they join in the fight at the side of the oppressed or marginal groups, conservationists and fish activists to preserve natural values and decide on how northern rivers are used. 

In addition, Mäkiranta will give an artistic presentation on 5 June.

During the opening week, the Research Pavilion venue is open to public also on Monday 7 June 15-18.
