The impacts of mining on freshwater ecosystems and on local communities has been the starting point for Arja Renell’s artistic practice. A seminar, organised by Renell and Curator Taru Elfving on Friday, 12 October, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and open to all, will bring together policy makers and civil society actors, as well as top researchers in environmental sciences. Please note that the language of the event will be Finnish.
The seminar will be organised under the title ‘Bold Makers’. Foundation’s Bold Makers events offer grantees an opportunity to arrange events open to the public at the newly refurbished Lauttasaari Manor and to bring art and research to wider audiences.
