Punos conducts the transdisciplinary art and research project Whose Climate, Whose Futures? (2021–2024). Punos also educates and supports the cultural field in responding to eco-crises.
Punos was initiated in 2020 by two curator-researchers, Anna-Kaisa Koski and Ki Nurmenniemi, who are based out of Helsinki, Finland. Together with artists, cultural workers, and research communities, Punos weaves more just and livable futures. In Punos’ work, the arts and scientific research nurture each other. Doing things together and supporting collaborative work are integral to ecologically and socially sustainable culture.
