dc.description.abstract This thesis centers on exploring the reflections and experiences in informallearning situations while looking into Harju Youth Center as a case. There arefour main explorations informing this thesis: 1. Looking into Harju’s socialfunction and strategies, 2. The pilot project “Thursdays in Harju”, an art exhibition and open mic night facilitated by MA NoVA students in the center, 3.Interactions and input from users of the space and 4. An arts and experience inquiry through knitting with Hanna Päivinen, a frequent user of the space. While exploring the four aspects of this research, critical ethnography was the main methodology used, it opened-up reflections in positionality and the emancipatory qualities of informal learning in a multi-voiced format through visuals, written reflections, diaries and interviews. This thesis highlights Harju as the “Third”, a space for open learning, where connections and relationships are formed and an atmosphere that opens-up possibilities. A space for departure, arrival and an in-between. en
