Het Fins Cultureel Instituut voor de Benelux stimuleert en ondersteunt artistieke en essentiële samenwerkingsverbanden en uitwisselingen tussen de Benelux en Finland. Ons programma zit vol met hedendaagse, duurzame en interdisciplinaire culturele initiatieven.
Wij werken zowel met artistieke projecten als rond maatschappelijke en actuele thema’s, en streven naar gelijkheid, inclusiviteit en antiracistische inspanningen binnen onze programmering. Onze focus varieert van beeldende kunst en hedendaags design tot creatieve performances, van expertise-uitwisselingen tot discussiefora over actuele onderwerpen. We produceren onze eigen content en werken daarnaast ook samen met verschillende partners, en we zijn actief betrokken bij netwerken zoals MoveMen, en de clusters van Nationale Culturele Instellingen van de Europese Unie (EUNIC) in België en Nederland.
