IHME School

Welcome to IHME School! IHME School consists of educational art projects and workshops. The Festival collaborates with the Youth Department of Helsinki, schools, universities and other similar partners, and produces programs for different target groups to open up the content of contemporary art. Art education project themes are based on the annual IHME Project content.

IHME School 2015 will be introduced later, stay tuned for the new projects.

Based on the IHME Project 2014 students from Aalto University carried out art education projects in Helsinki Diakonia College, Arabia Comprehensive School and Rauma Freinet School. At Kannelmäki Youth Centre visual artist Sasha Huber directed the IHME Re-Action workshops, which were also part of the City of Helsinki Youth Department’s participatory budgeting project RuutiBudjetti. The artwork produced in the workshops by young people was unveiled at the Pohjois-Haaga railway station on Thursday, April 10th, 2014.

IHME Days programme includes workshops open for everyone and held by art professionals. The workshop contents are related to the IHME Project theme. This year the programme included the comics workshop A New World through Comics by Katja Tukiainen, the Living Library by the students of Laurea University of Applied Sciences Tikkurila, and the Shared Stories workshop led by Annamari Karjalainen, Markus Luukkonen and Alexandra Salmela.
