Book your place at IHME events


This year, IHME’s Festival programme is again open and free of charge to everyone. The number of participants for some of the events is, however, limited. View the Festival events to see for which ones advance booking is recommended, and make sure of your place at these unrepeatable occasions.

Postdoctoral researcher and Arendt expert Julian Honkasalo will lead a gathering of the reading circle on Saturday, April 8 at 13:00–14:00 at the Gloria Cultural Arena, to ask: What thoughts do Arendt’s thoughts on totalitarianism awake in readers today?
