Marginalized Object Service Patrol

Marginalized Object Service Patrol

2011

Marginalized Object Service Patrol fought back shabbiness on Wednesday 23 March in 2011 within a radius of 365 metres from the centre of the Turku market square: plants were dusted in the shopping mall, worn crosswalk stripes were repainted using chalk, and pavement grilles of the pedestrian street were vacuumed. The patrol of volunteers also thoroughly cleaned the ears of the Erik Julin statue using cotton sticks and wrote a number of cheery letters that were put into the lonely mailbox of a dilapidated house nearby.


The work was part of the Turku Capital of Culture year 2011 and belonged to Turku365 -entity that more than 50 000 people participated in during the year.
