The Finnish Institute in Japan works extensively in different fields of culture. The Institute produces an innovative and inspirational cultural program and creates interaction between different cultural and artistic actors in Finland and Japan.
The theme for the 20th anniversary is New Openings. The Institute will organise new residencies such as residences associated with service design and bio-art, as well as events that showcase fashion and literature from new perspectives. Other themes of the jubilee year are e.g. female artists, and demographic developments and its challenges in Finland and Japan.
