Invitation: Virtual workshop on multilingualism, arts and cultural services, Wednesday, May 27, 2-4 pm
How could Finnish cultural policy promote cultural diversity and multilingualism in arts and culture?
Take part in developing cultural policy and cultural field!
The Government Programme of Prime Minister Sanna Marin aims at strengthening cultural dialogue, working together, inclusion and equality in the field of culture. To this end, the Ministry of Education and Culture has appointed a working group to prepare proposals for policies that could benefit this aim.
We invite you to participate in a virtual workshop to discuss this theme and to share your knowledge, experience and views with the working group.
We will host two virtual workshops. Each workshop lasts two hours and you can sign up for both or just one. Please sign up for the first one below:
First virtual workshop: Multilingualism, arts and cultural services
- Time: Wednesday 27.5.2020 at 14:00 – 16:00
- Themes: Realisation of multilingualism in arts and creative work & accessibility of cultural services from linguistic point of view. In addition other problems with openness, inclusion and accessibility can be discussed. There is first a joint section and after that, participants are divided into smaller groups for discussion. Themes are deepened in these group discussions firstly, from perspectives of what issues prevent the realization of multilingualism, and secondly, what solutions or remedies can be used to increase it. Groups use online platform that saves their key findings and concrete propositions of improvements.
