Field of Dreams is a one-day installation of 2021 footballs.
Tuesday, August 24, 2021. Bolt Arena, Töölö, Helsinki.
Whether you're a child or an adult, everyone needs a dream. As you mature, your dreams change, or at least evolve. What matters is that you continue believing in them. This project celebrates the importance of dreaming through something that is easily relatable to everyone: football.
During its one day on display, everyone is welcome to visit and play in the sea of footballs. You can bring along your old football and exchange it for a new one - come and embrace a new dream. Each football symbolizes a dream, and everyone's right to dream and to believe in their dreams. The installation imparts the message that not even a major crisis or global emergency should deny people their right to dream, or their right to a future.
Jan Vapaavuori, the President of the Finnish Olympic Committee opens the installation at 11 am.
The event is open to all, fully accessible and free of charge.
