Know Your Neighbour (Tunnetko Naapurisi?) is a multidisciplinary project focused on the various aspects of neighbourhood knowledge and social group formation. The Imitation Game is a social experiment, which tests the notion of interactional expertise – the ability to know and understand the social world of another, without having experienced it oneself. Our project uses the Imitation Game as a tool to a) conduct research on social group formation and maintenance b) develop pedagogical methods to enhance collective learning c) spread information about neighbour relationships through digital mass media platforms. Together we aim to foster mutual understanding and empathy in rapidly diversifying neighbourhoods.
