The Mustarinda Association is a group of artists and
researchers, whose goal is to promote the ecological rebuilding of
society, the diversity of culture and nature, and the connection between
art and science.
At the centre of our activity lie contemporary art, boundary-crossing research, practical experimentation, communication, teaching and events. The Mustarinda Association reaches towards a post-fossil culture by combining scientific knowledge and experiential artistic activity.
The Mustarinda Association is active both internationally and locally. Our activities are rooted at the Mustarinda house at the edge of the Paljakka nature reserve in Kainuu; the house has versatile spaces for artist and researcher residencies, and is also the location for exhibitions and various events. Some of our activity also takes place in Helsinki. Mustarinda-seura ry (the Mustarinda Association) is a non-profit organisation which mainly operates on a voluntary basis.
Mustarinda house is run by interns, volunteers and Mustarinda members.
Mustarinda is a great internship place for people interested in ecological issues and sustainable living.
In exchange for their work Mustarinda provides for interns a free accommodation with own room. We prefer internships to last 2 months or longer.
We are now looking for
RESIDENCY INTERNS to take care of the residency, exhibition, (garden) and Mustarinda house.
TECHNICAL INTERNS to work with Mustarinda’s energy self sufficient system and take care of the practical things in and outside the house.
