WELCOME!

Inkeri-seura (Association of Ingrian Finns) was founded by the community of Ingrian Finns, who lived in Finland before World War II. The society had existed up to the beginning of the 1990s, but due to a decrease of the number of its members it was officially closed. In 2008 the society was re-established by Ingrian Finns who had migrated to Finland in the 1990s. The society (it's new name Association of Ingrian Finns of Helsinki region) is the member of SuomenInkeri-Liitto (Ingrian Finns Organisation of Finland). InkerinViesti is a printing press magazine of the society.

Learning photography


We are learning photography.

Is it always the elderly yield new technologies? usuallu it is not easy. That's why seniors have decided to learn how to use digital cameras and process the photos with the help of computer programs. This is only the beginning it seemed that the camera is so "smart" that does it for you, but it turned out it was not.

What are we doing in our classrooms? Topics:

- How to take pictures with the different conditions (landscape, portrait, etc., and also depending on weather conditions)

- Object photography: we remove the general form or fragment

- Processing ready photos (decrease, "red eye", the selection and the like)

- Order photos online

It is why photography course was very useful.

Our memories


Presenting the idea of memory pillows

The creative method of the Finnish module was developed for Ingrian senior migrants living in Finland. This method for memory recollection is easily applicable to different groups of people despite their age, education, etc. The method is ideally implemented for groups of seniors working together with caretakers. Personnel and caretakers could also provide examples of their own by sharing experiences and making a visible artifact of their lives. By sharing their work, the staff give seniors an example to refer to when designing their own project.

This UPS workshop is most suitable for elderly people over 50, especially those who have lost their homes and those who have been transferred or expelled once or many times in their lives. Sometimes these people have very few, if any possessions that remind them of the past; only memories have survived, and maybe some old photos. As told in the theoretical segment, individual life stories may be fragmented, or individuals may not want to remember them. Gently suggesting participation in memory/recollection activities within supportive groups and a nurturing environment helps ensure inner healing and integration into different external communities, i.e., groups who share similar backgrounds and the broader national community.

Such activities strengthen people twofold internally at the individual level and externally at the level of community.

Inkeri-seura seniors were busy with making of Christmas cards. A handmade card is filled with part of soul and personal touch. The seniors were very enthusiastic and creative. At that time there was Christmas market in Karjala-talo, so we even managed to sell some of our newly made cards!

It is easier, of course, would be to buy them ready-made, but made with their own hands is more valuable: we invest in postcards of our soul. It seems that such an event is more suitable for children, but you should have seen the enthusiasm with which all went to work! Blue, red, green - blanks were snapped up. Snowflakes, angels, Christmas trees, bells found their place on the card. This year we have made three-dimensional greeting cards, use double-sided thick tape. In Karelia-house in the same period was the Christmas market. We sell visitors a few postcards. On the day of the master class on making cards was terrible weather: rain and strong wind, clouds shrouded the sky. But! Seniors do not want to sit in the warm. Problems were only the coordinator: on the eve dropped sleet, and snow cover of 20 cm threatened to exit the machine from the yard.
