Russian-Finnish Cultural Forum to Take Place in Saint Petersburg on September 11
09.03.2003 18:06

SAINT PETERSBURG, September 2. The IV Russian-Finnish cultural forum will take place in Saint Petersburg on September 11 to 13. According to the press office of the city administration, the event will be a part of the Week of Finland festival which is set to mark the 300th anniversary of the Russian city. The main theme of this year's forum will be a project called Youth and Culture. Thematic seminars Castles and Fortresses and Arts management will also be held as part of the forum.

The main aim of the forum is to bring greater integration between the cultural departments of Finland and the North West Federal District of Russia. The first Russian-Finnish cultural forum was held in Helsinki in 2000. The forums are held on an annual place and take place in each country alternately. The 2001 forum was held in Nizhni Novgorod.

Every year the host country organizes specific projects and proposals for collaboration while the visiting delegation seeks partners proposed by the host country. Russia is holding the event this year and is therefore looking to provide potential partners for Finnish cultural activists.

The opening ceremony of the forum, which is organised by the Finnish Enlightenment Ministry and the Russian Ministry of Culture, will feature the two respective ministers Tanya Karpela and Mikhail Shvedkoi.
