IHME Helsinki commissions contemporary artworks that unite the worlds of art, science and climate action. Each year, we produce a public artwork and a series of events that offer a vision and hope amid the environmental crisis. Our events are free and open to anyone interested. IHME Helsinki Commission 2023 has been conceived by Kurdish artist Hiwa K and is titled Chicago Boys – while we were singing, they were dreaming. The commission will take place during 17.4–27.5.2023 at Stoa Cultural Centre and in other public spaces around (Eastern) Helsinki – to be announced later. The project reflects on the impact of neoliberalism and the environmental crisis on our everyday lives. We are now looking for a part-time producer to collaborate with IHME’s team and the amateur band that will be formed for the project, and to facilitate and produce the band’s private and public rehearsals, which will include storytelling, discussion, teaching and learning to play music, and playing music together.
We are looking for a producer for IHME Helsinki Commission 2023 to produce public and private rehearsals, discussions and learning processes (instruments, catering, transportation, venue bookings etc.) for the Chicago Boys amateur band over the six-week period of the project. There will be six private rehearsals and six public rehearsals altogether. Cultural Centre Stoa will be the home for private rehearsals and the last public rehearsal.
