IHME Helsinki podcast: Art, Science, Ecology

April 14, 2021

Members of the Advisory Board of the contemporary-art-commissioning agency IHME Helsinki are hosting a series of podcasts on the themes of Art, Science and Ecology. They will discuss new approaches in art and in the lives of artists and art institutions responding to the environmental crisis. How can we raise awareness and activate our audiences, create a more sustainable art world, and promote a cultural shift in which less is more?

The Finland-based IHME Helsinki unites the worlds of art, science, and climate-change mitigation. Each year, IHME produces a public artwork and a series of events that offer a vision and hope amid the environmental crisis. IHME Helsinki’s goal is to achieve a carbon-neutral art-institutional practice.

The podcasts are being produced in collaboration with Helsinki Open Waves.
