Our Programme

 

The Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux encourages and supports artistic and critical collaboration and exchange between the Benelux and Finland. Our programme is infused with contemporary, sustainable, and cross-disciplinary cultural initiatives.

We work with artistic projects as well societal and topical themes, aiming for equality, inclusivity, and anti-racist efforts within our programming. Our focus ranges from visual arts and contemporary design to creative performances – from expertise exchange to discussion forums on current issues. We produce our own content as well as collaborate with different partners, and we are actively involved in networks such as MoveMen, and the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) clusters in Belgium and the Netherlands.
