The annual IHME festival brings international contemporary art to public spaces. The IHME artist’s commissioned work surprises people on everyday routes, and even in places where art is rarely seen. The IHME Project continues as a free event that provides perspectives on the themes in the work. Our community-based IHME School is implemented in schools, youth centres and wherever the IHME Project is realised.

The Festival is open to the public and free of charge.
