With preparations well underway for the Tram Buskers’ Tour taking place in March, Nikke Kaartinen joins the IHME team and will co-ordinate the IHME Project from February until mid-April.

Nikke has worked in the fields of art and tourism and is an active member of many cultural associations. He has background in Cultural Studies and History and holds an MA degree with a major in West and South Slavonic Languages.

Nikke looks forward to working with the buskers in this new post: “It’s great to be part of something that hasn’t been done before – especially with a bunch of musicians, as music has always been close to my heart.”

Nikke’s contact information can be found on the Office page.
