Guest speakers and panelists
Photographer, CEO of Neemo Ltd.
Nanna will facilitate a live workshop to provide us with deeper perspectives on the societal discussion about VUCA and our own resilience. In the workshop, we utilize Nanna’s conceptual photography, which reflects e.g. understanding the world from the perspective of the individual and the community, and e.g. climate change, disinformation and being human. In our discussion, we harness the potential of art as a discussion tool.

She studied at the Lahti Institute of Design, at the Zurich University of the Arts, and she got her Master’s Degree from the University of Art and Design in Helsinki (Aalto University).
