Interesting arrives in Helsinki! The idea of Interesting events is pretty straightforward: fifteen or so professionals from fields like research, arts and design share their recent interests in 10 minutes. Interesting is based on an idea of a British journalist and media activist Russell Davies. Since his first events in London, Interesting has spread to Amsterdam, Portland and New York, only to name a few.
Interesting Helsinki is programmed and hosted by Tommi Laitio and Jenna Sutela. The event is made possible with the support of Artnet and Artprint. The look and feel of Interesting Helsinki has been designed by Kokoro&Moi.
