Kuusi Palaa was a trans-disciplinary cultural space in Helsinki that operated in the spring of 2018.

Through a co-op model, its decentralized structure enabled anyone to become a member and financially support it. Kuusi Palaa was an interface for multiple creative agents to share a common physical space, establish collaborative networks, and participate in a collective economy.
Everybody could design and promote their own projects and events, instead of having one person or team assigned for this specific work. Furthermore, a Google Drive containing files with fonts, stencils, and ready-to-use forms was of common access.
Kuusi Palaa’s cards and stationery were multifunctional, with graphics depicting a constellation of dots highlighting its decentralized spirit.
