Lymy is a space in Helsinki that we have rented together as an initial experiment in shaping a life in common with friends and comrades. We use the space to meet each other and others, eat together, do paid and unpaid work, study, share skills, accumulate resources, have fun and organize. Out of all the questions we could ask ourselves today we feel that the one that really connects us with our immediate situation is: what does shared life look like, here and now?

We strive towards something that would bridge the disparate moments of belonging we experience in different projects and struggles into one continuous terrain. A terrain we can inhabit without being torn between the two feelings that dominate our lives: anxiety (“something, anything must be done”) and apathy (“nothing can be done”). We want to transform the prevailing sadness altered with moments of individual happiness into collective joy that gives us strength. There will never be a better or worse time to start building new forms of life in common.

Lymy is a political collective with a focus on bringing autonomy to an everyday lived level and creating connections between different political groups and networks based in Helsinki and elsewhere. We want to create a physical and social space for working and living collectively, which is why we rent a space in Helsinki. As members of Lymy, we pay rent each month from our own pockets. We welcome different groups to use Lymy and make events in Lymy. If you want to make an event in Lymy, please tell us your idea and in which ways you would be interested in organising together with Lymy. When using the space, we appreciate a donation according to your possibilities as a way of contributing to the rent.
