In January-February, the visual artist Kari Cavén led a joint project by IHME and the City of Helsinki Youth Department. Cavén’s Liars’ Club was an open event to be held in 5 Youth Centres, in which young people identify amazing objects. After the event, the objects identified will go on a tour of museums, where the audience will be able to view the objects and explore the young people’s stories. The tour will take in at the National Museum of Finland, Design Museum and the Museum of Technology 13.-29.3.2015. Kari Cavén is inspired by the project and says: “The unknown was invented so you can leap into it.”

Artist/cultural-producer/youth-leader workgroup model
Liars’ Club is a part of a collaborative venture between HUMAK University of Applied Sciences and the City of Helsinki’s Youth Department. The goal of this project is to create a model for collaborative work by an artist, producer and youth leader on art-based ventures. The project is being funded by the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture. The project workgroup has studied people’s experiences on realized art projects, and is actively monitoring the 2015 IHME Festival’s Liars’ Club workshops. Work began in winter 2014–2015 and will continue until the end of 2015.
