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 was New Openings but the Institute will continue with the same theme. 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 are e.g. female artists.
