• About Us

    The Finnish Institute in London is a private, non-profit trust bringing together individuals, communities and organisations. Our mission is to identify emerging issues important to contemporary society in Finland, the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. We encourage cross-disciplinary and cross-border collaboration by creating networks and building new partnerships.

    We want to take thinking of social challenges and cultural practices in new, positive directions. To do this, we open up spaces for novel ideas, discussions and trends by bringing passionate people together. We believe that a pinch of risk-taking accompanied by the hard work of imaginative people can transform the cultures and spaces we collectively inhabit. We embrace the unexpected while nurturing and maintaining excellence in contemporary social and cultural practice.
