PLEASE be aware that Third Space is quite a small space, so it might be good to be there in time if you want to fit in.
The Finnish Society for Aesthetics was founded 1972. It has approximately 140 members. The society functions as a co-operative forum for scholars, students and other people showing interest in aesthetics. It aspires to develop research in aesthetics, to create contacts between arts and sciences, and to nourish discussions on aesthetic values. The membership of the society is open to everyone interested in the society.

Third Space is a collective seeking to unsettle preconceived notions of the other. As cross border transcultural operatives we seek to erase the invisible lines that separate us. (http://www.th1rdspac3.com/third-space.html)
