We are four journalism students at the Oulu University of Applied Sciences, OAMK. We are making a multimedia production about abandoned – or nearly abandoned – places. The places we are showing used to be full of life. We are discovering why they are slowly dying out.
We are making a documentary series of three episodes and we are writing articles to create more depth into the stories. We think it is important to tell these stories and show these places because we want to discover how it’s possible that a place becomes abandoned? What is the reason? What happened there? What will be the future of these places?
