Solja Kumpula has started as an intern at The Finnish-Norwegian Cultural Institute. The internship started at the beginning of September and will last until the end of June 2024.
Solja studies Area and Cultural Studies at the University of Helsinki and wants to specialize in Nordic Studies during her Master’s program. She has also studied cultural and creative industries and the globalization of cultural production during her Erasmus+ exchange semester at Aarhus University.
Previously, Solja has worked at the communications department of The Finnish Youth Research Society and has also worked with culture, film education and social media at IhmeFilmi ry and PopUp ry.
“In the future my ambition is to work with Nordic cooperation. I’m looking forward to learning how the cultural institute promotes cultural cooperation between Norway and Finland. In addition, it is interesting to ponder how the field of arts and culture can promote sustainable development.
Welcome to the team, Solja!
The internship is funded by The Finnish National Agency for Education.
