The Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux serves as a bridge between professionals in the cultural field in Finland and the Benelux countries and promotes the visibility of Finnish culture in the Benelux region.
As an independent, non-profit organisation, the Institute’s main goal is to create opportunities in which artists and organisations can elaborate new projects and new possibilities of collaboration. The Institute also produces its own content and productions in close collaboration with its partner networks, often tackling current social issues. The aim is to establish long-term and sustainable cooperation between artists and other professionals, in different cultural fields, from visual and performing arts, to literature, design, cinema, and more.
Throughout its work, the Institute promotes diversity, equity and inclusion and actively works towards creating a fairer cultural playing field. The Institute fosters international mobility and cultural exchange, while implementing ecologically and socially sustainable working methods and practices.
The Institute was founded in 1993. Based in Brussels, at the heart of the European Union, the Institute has the unique position to influence European audiences and decision-making. It is maintained by the Foundation for the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux.
