IHME Helsinki is a contemporary art commissioning agency that unites the worlds of art, science and climate action. Each year we produce a public artwork and a series of events that offer hope in a time of environmental crisis. Our events are free and open to anyone interested. IHME Helsinki Commission 2024 is the Maaleipä Challenge, designed by London-based Cooking Sections. The Challenge will run from 15 April to 1 September, after which a jury will select the best recipes to be presented at an award ceremony at Teurastamo Kellohalli on 21 September 2024. The Maaleipä Challenge invites all home bakers, bakeries, restaurants, schools, and communities in Finland to create bread recipes that combine the well-being of land, water, and people’s gut microbiomes.

We offer an opportunity to be part of the main event, designed by international artists, at Kellohalli on 21 September 2024. The event will include a bread exhibition, a small-scale farmers’ market, a workshop, and music performances.

As an IHME Helsinki event producer you will be an important part of the IHME team, which includes the artist duo Cooking Sections and IHME’s Executive Director, Communications Planner, Eco-Coordinator, Communications Intern and audience workers. You will learn about communications for and production of contemporary art that promotes cultural change in an environmental crisis, and ways to consider and reduce the carbon footprint of art production. You will be involved in promoting equality and safer spaces for participation in the arts.

Besides producing the main event for the national challenge competition, you will learn about the green transition in agriculture, soil-friendly ingredients, and how these are linked to human health. The Challenge is part of Cooking Sections’ broader CLIMAVORE project, which asks how are we to eat as humans change the climate. You will learn more about this international art project that is changing food culture around the world.
