IHME Helsinki Commission 2024

At the heart of IHME is an annual public artwork

IHME Helsinki Commissions are made together with an artist or artist group and Finnish and foreign partners, in public space in Finland and abroad. IHME Helsinki Commission 2024 is Maaleipä Challenge by Cooking Sections. The challenge is part of Cooking Section’s CLIMAVORE project. The Maaleipä Challenge is on! The Challenge invites everyone in Finland to create bread recipes that combine the well-being of land, water and people’s guts.

The best recipes will be awarded at the Maaleipä ceremony at Kellohalli in Helsinki on 21 September 2024.
