Pro Korpo Bladet

A local and rural monthly publication crafted with love.

What is Pro

Korpo Bladet?

Pro Korpo Bladet is a project that we are super proud of. It is a free local and rural publication that is delivered to every household in Korpo on a monthly basis. With it, we bring attention to the local events and initiatives, to the local history and to the local companies. But it is also a space to reflect on the future and on the challenges of a rural community.

With it, we want to bring a feeling of community, helping the inhabitants of Korpo to raise their self-esteem. For decennia, we have been told by the dominant culture that the real and exciting life resides in the city, we strongly believe that that’s not true and we work unsparingly to demonstrate it. In this space, you will find all the past numbers of the magazine. Long-life to Korpo Bladet!

The history

After living in quite many places together, we (Ida & Aarón) came to Korpo the summer of 2015 to work in Skärgårdscentrum Korpoström. After those months we felt that Korpo was the place where we wanted to settle, and so we did the next summer, 2016.

Ida started working in the local shop BMA, and Aarón in restaurant Hjalmar’s as a waiter. As we grew into the community, we felt that we wanted to do something more for Korpo and its inhabitants, so we joined the local association Pro Korpo. At the very first meeting we participated in, we talked about how inspired we were with the publication Houtskär Nytt, a local magazine published in an island near us. Korpo used to have a

similar publication too, but it had been lost for at least a decade at that point. Then and there we decided to try to re-start the publication and Pro Korpo Bladet was born.

Honestly, by that time we had NO idea how to create a magazine, but after a few weeks we launched the first issue. Now we have been publishing the magazine monthly since June 2017, in between we have had a child, we have started many other projects, we have become entrepreneurs, but we have still always managed to deliver every issue on time, doing 99% of the work. Together we are a very strong and resilient team.
