Here you can read more about the projects I’ve been working these last years in Bilbao and Helsinki.
IRANZU GUIJARRO, 30 years old. /// Email: email@example.com
These last 3 years, I have been working and collaborating in many different projects. Projects related to music, culture, art, business and my personal blog. I love to work in team. When you are working with people, you can contrast your ideas, you can learn new ways of thinking, and you can have fun. I define myself as project manager cause I like to design project ideas and actions looking from a global vision. I easily see general structure of the problem or the idea, my mind makes some connections and after that, I start designing strategies of how to act. Finally, what I like is create connections, share with a group of people and start prototyping.
– TO ENJOY SMALL BEAUTIFUL THINGS OF LIFE IS A LUXURY. – MOVING AND DANCING IN THE CITY WITH A BIG SMILE.
– THE WEALTH OF MULTICULTURAL SPACES CREATE A SOCIAL COMFORT.
What they say about me.
Jose M. Sánchez, KineticPixels. 2012 /// Impact Stories Hub Helsinki. Dance of Innocence.
“Iranzu is the definition of getting things done and moving impossible projects forward. She is very proactive whose contribution make a great impact to any team. I really believe our first project together “Impact Stories from Hub Helsinki” would not have happened without her dedication and positive thinking. Iran was able to take out from me a very creative thinking for our video together “the dance of innocence” which became my most viral project so far. She initiated a brainstorming session “fresh eye” which result was a very delicate and visually appealing video. Throughout the years, I have met and collaborated with many people with different backgrounds, I can hardly compare Iran’s dedication and creative touch with other inputs I had in the past. Her passion and organizational skills are valuable skills to get any production done and pushed forward.”
Amaya Rodriguez, Coincidencias, Refresh Thinking. 2010-2012.
“Explorer with artist soul. I have worked with Iranzu developing Coincidencias, Refresh Thinking Consultancy as a Co-founder. I ‘ve loved it and we have had a special connection from the first minute. Everything has been life – long learning, action and heart. Iranzu has different ways of looking at things, fresh eyed. She has inspired me many times when we are working. She likes to mix something that apparently hasn’t got sense adding value and emotion to services. A part from the creative side, she has an organized vision, planning capacity, precise time management always focused to the action. She knows how to make the most of the projects.
Javier Mendibil, Iranzu’s coach during LEADERSHIP ADVENTURE program (Team Academy Euskadi – TECNALIA) 2010.
“Iranzu participated in the creation of the team-company Coincidencias while she was involved in Leadership Adventure program. Through working in different projects with customers she developed her skills in personal leadership, design and co-creation of solutions and services, team learning processes and networking. Iranzu has a multidisciplinary background and cross-sectoral interests. Iranzu’s global view is very relevant for any organization that aim to be innovative and also for social initiatives.”
Jon Gaztaka, Bakiosound Music Festival. 2013
“Working with Iran it is easy. It is easy because of her open minded character mixed with an interesting taste that she gives to every matter she works with. In addition, working with Iran, it is an emotional experience. It is an intensive trip into the deep meanings of every issue where the work guides is the team. And the team is an objective itself for Iran.”

BEHAR BIKIAK by Ane San Miguel, @artepilpilean & Iranzu Guijarro, @IranGrace.
Last June, Ane and me proposed this project in Conexiones Improbables, slow innovation basque program, to collaborate with a basque agriculture association. It is so curious how Ane and me started working together. I remembered perfectly calling her by Skype from Helsinki and trying to explain all my ideas and my willingness of doing something attractive. She was so excited listening to me…In a minute we started collaborating and creating this BEHAR BIKIAK PROJECT. This January, we presented again in Art Clinic Bilbao.
What is BEHAR BIKIAK?
A (co) llaborative process where through various events, actions & social dynamics involved people or companies find their soul mate.
1. Because they share the same needs.
2. Because their target is the same audience.
3. Because they find a common points of collaboration.
Different Bikiak Behar will be collected in a lab ecosystem, where connections are created in open source. The display and dissemination of collective intelligence generated will be in an online space. All Behar Bikiak have a self-managed content such as visual, auditory and written. In this lab Behar Bikiak meet, mix and evolve creating a local and international network.
IMPACT STORIES by Jose M. Sanchéz and Iranzu Guijarro. The project arose from one innocent conversation at Hub Helsinki between Jose Manuel Sanchez and me, Iranzu Guijarro. Jose is a filmmaker, film editor and enthusiastic spanish boy that I met last year in Helsinki when I was working at Hub Helsinki as a host of the space.
What is IMPACT STORIES?
IMPACT STORIES from Hub Helsinki is a series of videos introducing Hub Helsinki Members. These episodes feature Hub members and their stories as entrepreneurs. Impact Stories have been born through collaboration between small entrepreneurs. They are a good example of how combining their skills, entrepreneurs can create something bigger than working just by their own and where enthusiasm counts more than euros. They are creating a fresh products and services which improve the Finnish economy and atmosphere.
DANCE OF INNOCENCE – Artistic Project – by Jose Manuel Sánchez, Alejandro Lorenzo and me, Iranzu Guijarro.
When I finnished designing my 4 different necklesses, I started thinking about how I can combine my wish of doing a performance and introducing my designs. I arrived at Helsinki on 6th of April, by coincidence, 2 of my best friends from there (Jose M. Sanchez and Alejandro Lorenzo), they were in film edition and photography area. Jose M. Sanchez, filmmaker and edition designer, decided to use the images for a movies competition. And Alejandro Lorenzo, froze the best movements and moments of my performance. Thanks guys!
Some words of Jose and Alejandro. Jose said “Here is a conceptual movie created with Iranzu Guijarro and the collaboration of many others. We made this piece with a lot of love and the never ending inspiration coming from Iran. This was fantastic journey. Love you, mi vasca!” Alejandro said ” Thanks again, guys, for having me on the group. Great inspiration!”
BILUZTU NAZAZU by Peru Galbete and me, Iranzu Guijarro.
“Biluztu nazazu” is a point of view, a way of seeing things between Peru Galbete, Photographer and me, fan of fashion. The name of the project is in basque, Biluztu nazazu (get me undressed). We got inspire from a basque song of Anari. In her song, she recites some metaphors mixing undress concept with taking off your doubts. Be pure.
