Online Discussion 9 February: Our Culture to Our People

In Conversation with the Finnish Institutes: Our Culture to Our People

The fourth session of “In conversation with the Finnish institutes” takes place on 9 February at 17-18 on Zoom.

The seminar looks into inner community organising and the ways in which minoritized communities create arts and culture for themselves. Our focus is on the Sámi communities and how they work for their own benefit: producing, creating and curating for their community. This is an episode of FUBU, for-us-by-us mentality, with arts and culture in the center. The guests for the episode are activist and community organiser Petra Laiti, funding advisor at Nordic Culture Point, and curator producer Christina Hætta, the head of Cultural Unit in the Saami council. We will ponder on what and how the Sámi communities create culture and community for themselves.

They are joined by producer Iiris Tarvonen from the Finnish-Norwegian Cultural Institute. The discussion is moderated by Monica Gathuo.
