Symposium on 22.9.2022

A Symposium co-hosted by the Artists’ Association of Finland, IAA Europe and a-n The Artists Information Company (UK) invites visual artists, curators and cultural organisations to share ways to support artists seeking refuge.

Showing solidarity for our colleagues at the National Union of Artists of Ukraine, this year’s IAA Europe Symposium invites visual artists, curators and cultural organisations to share ways to support artists seeking refuge.

Building Artists’ Futures will question why creating and exhibiting art matters in times of war and explore what the IAA Europe and the wider international art community can do to establish sustainable support networks. Speakers will share their experiences of programmes aimed at supporting artists seeking refuge to continue their practices and offer their views on how to deepen the representation of Ukrainian artists, artworks and cultural events that make Ukraine an important part of Europe.

The Symposium will take place on Thursday 22nd September 2022 at 10 am – 3 pm in Ode – Helsinki Central Library, Helsinki, Finland. This is an in-person event that will not be recorded.

The full programme of speakers will be announced shortly.
