HEL/LO - Puhutaan designista

  • The Finnish Institute is organising a series of events called HEL/LO - Let's Talk. They will bring together architecture and design professionals for a lively exchange of ideas.

    Curated by Hanna Harris, Programme Director for Arts & Culture at the Finnish Institute in London, and Blueprint magazine's Senior Writer, Owen Pritchard, HEL/LO aims to promote dialogue and collaboration between Helsinki and London through an exploration of the design culture in each capital and the pressing issues architects and designers face.

    Four HEL/LO events will take place during key times of the year, kicking off late May in London during Clerkenwell Design Week and with two further events during the London Festival of Architecture in July and London Design Festival in September. HEL/LO will also travel to Helsinki during Helsinki Design Week in September as the city and its people engage in a year-long exploration into the role of design.

    HEL/LO - Let's Talk is organised in collaboration with Blueprint magazine and it is part of the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 international programme of events.

    The helloletstalk.fi blog will be launched on the 12th of April.
