I am an Artist Expert working with the Bridge Builders (Sillanrakentajat) development programme. This programme focuses on three regions in eastern Finland: South Savo, North Savo and North Karelia. The duration of the programme is three years. In my work, I promote the status of artists and art within society and working life. Within the scope of the project, I work towards increasing the visibility of different artists and artforms, strengthening the employment of artists, and embedding creative thinking and expertise in various structures.
