The Crazy Town community in Pori is managed by community managers Petri Linna and Kati Fager. According to Petri Linna, the community is what makes Crazy Town special. Facilities can be found anywhere, but community is the essence of Crazy Town. Community spirit is supported by organising various events. Petri Linna emphasises that the community also operates at a national level. Crazy Town has co-working locations in other cities as well, which is why events are also organised in collaboration with the other cities. Both Crazy Town and the Gamecoast network emphasise community and collaborative development and learning, which is what makes these networks very attractive. Come and join the networks!
