On the occasion of the institute’s reopening, the residency program Finnish Studios in Paris will be one of the focal points of cultural exchange. The new initiative embodies institute’s values of networking, encounters and international collaboration.
The project aims to provide support for Finnish artists, curators and creatives to launch their career in France and to further encourage international collaborations. Through the residency program, the institute introduces Finnish art and creative industries in Paris.
The residency project consists of various programs, in collaboration with Finnish and French partners. During the three-year pilot project, four residency programs will be held annually in the field of design, dance, fashion and photography.
The institute’s residency program will begin in January 2019, and more details will be announced in autumn 2018.
