Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux

Kuva instituutista

The Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux serves as a liaison between players in the cultural field in Finland and the Benelux countries. 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.

The Institute was founded in 1993 and is based in Brussels. It is maintained by the Foundation for the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux.
