IHME Panel

Would you like to learn more about art, science and environmental issues? Then come along to IHME Helsinki Panel, which unites them all! No advance knowledge is required – all you need is a curious attitude.

The IHME Panel is at the core of IHME’s audience work – a discussion forum that meets around 4 times a year. Panellists’ opinions are important to us! We ask the Client Panel member’s views to aid communications, client services and project accessibility; we are excited by new ideas and honest feedback. We offer this group of volunteers a look behind the scenes of contemporary art, encounters with people on the art scene, and invitations to trial events and enjoyable evenings.

IHME Helsinki responds to the climate crisis by reviewing and developing its practices at all operational levels. Our hope is that IHME Helsinki Panel would strengthen our ability to discuss and test environmental action in our daily lives and help us encourage and share tips with each other. Meetings specifically address the themes covered by IHME Helsinki Commissions.
