“The most rewarding thing has been getting into the inner circle, hearing and discussing plans, and giving feedback in a relaxed atmosphere.”
“It has given me a chance to get to know the work of an international artist.”

The IHME Panel is at the heart of IHME’s work with the public: a discussion forum that meets about 2-3 times a year. The opinions of panel members are important to us – together we are more! We ask the client panel’s views, for example, to help decide on the programme, in communications and client services; we are thrilled by new ideas and honest feedback.

We offer Panel members a chance to influence events in a cheerful and informal spirit. Each year, we also try to arrange a unique encounter on the contemporary art scene, or a peek “behind the scenes” at the Festival. If you want, you can also go behind those scenes to the front line, by working as a volunteer on the staging of event.
