Our annual report for 2020 is out, giving your an overview of everything that happened in the previous cultural year.
Despite a global pandemic and its effects on the (cultural) world, we’re happy to see 2020 was still a busy year, though somewhat different than expected. Programming was shifted or cancelled, events were taken online, and plenty of new initiatives saw the light of day.
We worked on projects in many different cultural fields, from visual arts and design to performance and societal issues. Some of the highlights include the launch of the Together Alone funding project, a collaboration between all Finnish Institute; the (Un)dressing the Man panel talk in Helsinki in August, design exhibition Call to the Wild at Maison Louis Carré, and of course the launch of our publication, MASCULINITIES – Thoughts & Reflections. We also saw a big rise in the number of students for our Finnish Language Courses, a happy consequence of online teaching.
