Guest speakers: Maija Lummepuro, Pasi Saukkonen, Jussi Koitela, Erik Söderblom
Moderated by Ceyda Berk-Söderblom (G.A.P) & Sepideh Rahaa (G.A.P)
The Ministry of Education and Culture’s report Art, Culture and Diverse Finland, the final report of the Working Group for Cultural Policy, Immigrants and Promotion of Cultural Diversity, was released earlier this year and is the topic of this discussion. The discussion is focused on art institutions as part of G.A.P’s contribution to this year’s #StopHatredNow theme, Reshaping Horizons of Hope. Researcher Pasi Saukkonen (Chair of the Working Group) & Maija Lummepuro (Senior Advisor, Ministry of Education and Culture) present the report and discuss the action plan which is currently being prepared by the Ministry. Our other guests Jussi Koitela (Head of Program at Frame Contemporary Finland) and Erik Söderblom (Artistic Director of Espoo City Theatre) engage in this conversation by addressing what would be the next possible steps for advancing diversity, equity and inclusivity in the art scene. The discussion is moderated by Ceyda Berk-Söderblom (Cultural Manager) and Sepideh Rahaa (Artist and Researcher).
