This Coming Together is a spin-off from the Uniarts Helsinki’s Academy of Fine Arts and Saastamoinen Foundation mentorship program from 2021–2023, a self-imposed exhibition reflecting the eight participant student's experiences of peer support. Like the ambiguous title, the exhibition offers versatile artistic entry points related to studying, working and being together within so-called art worlds and fields.

The Uniarts Helsinki’s Academy of Fine Arts and Saastamoinen Foundation mentorship program establishes a peer support group to assist the participant students in their educational experience and prepare for practice post-art school. The program is part of the project International incubators in Fine Arts and the participant selection was conducted through a call for students at the Academy of Fine Arts. The program was run by curator Angela Rosenberg and artist Hans Rosenström, and the curator/university teacher Sakari Tervo was invited by the participant students to assist in the exhibition making.
