Ines Montalvao

I am a professional creative with long and demonstrated experience in the museum and science centres field. Based in Helsinki since 2017, I worked for Heureka Tiedekeskus until 2021. My work path has been focused in international and travelling exhibitions, and in concept & experience design, with skills in consulting, workshop facilitation and project management and implementation. In 2020, I co-founded Mandarina Collective, a group that combines different backgrounds in Science, Illustration and Experience Design to create engaging and accessible narrative environments for everyone – performance, workshops, exhibitions. In 2021 I started Lingua Plantae, a project on plant-human interaction, communication and language through biodata sonification. I am a member of the Finnish Bioart Society, Ninho Kulttuurikeskus Ry and part of the Executive Committee of the Experience Research Society (EXPRESSO). In my practice, focused on Art and Science, I explore cross-disciplinary approaches, storytelling, illustration and innovative ways to create meaningful experiences. All this comes from an enthusiastic and dreamy way of being.
