The Namastic Art Collective was founded in Helsinki in the warm summer of 2006.
It is based on a loose network of contacts and collaborations between artists and other professionals of art and related fields.
It was born out of the necessity to organize and develop contemporary art projects on an international scale. For this purpose, extensive networking and research were also commenced.
Primarily, the idea was to export contemporary art from Finland and other Nordic countries to the wider world but implicit in the concept of Namastic was also the intention of organizing projects and events in Finland.
In a way, the thinking behind Namastic transcends borders and nationalities, which is also reflected in the multinational composition of the group.
Art has always been on the vanguard of globalization and today more than ever, art and artists are circulating around the globe, finding new audiences and ways of interaction and collaboration.
