How could Finnish cultural policy promote cultural diversity and multilingualism in arts and culture?

Take part of developing cultural policy and cultural field!

Finland’s Government Programme aims at strengthening cultural dialogue, working together, inclusion and equality in the field of culture. To this end, the Ministry of Education and Culture has appointed a working group to prepare proposals for policies that could benefit this aim.

We invite you to participate in a virtual workshop to discuss this theme and to share your knowledge, experience and views with the working group.

Virtual workshop:  Intercultural encounter and dialogue (working language English)

Themes: Enhancing intercultural encounter, dialogue and mutual learning in arts and culture. There is first a joint section and after that, participants are divided into smaller working groups for discussion. Themes are deepened in these group discussions firstly, from perspectives of what issues prevent intercultural encounter and dialogue, and secondly, what solutions or remedies can be used to increase it, in the field of culture and the arts in particular. Group participants make use of an online platform where they save their key findings and concrete proposals.
