New project to create a new info centre for the design field

Kirsi Korhonen has been appointed the project manager of a new project that aims to strengthen the visibility of the field of design in Finland and beyond. The project will bring different institutions and actors closer to each other.

Finland is a design nation with successful designers, companies, institutions and universities. This know-how should be made more visible.

The new project builds a platform and communication channels for the design field. The stories represent dynamic and diverse design knowledge and serve both the business and public sector as well as society at large. The goal is to open a service point to serve those interested in Finnish design so they can easily find the contacts and information they need.

The project is led by Helsinki Design Week’s organizer Luovi Productions, Aalto University, Design Forum Finland, the Design Museum, the Grafia Association of Visual Communication Designers and Ornamo Art and Design Finland. The project is funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture.

Kirsi Korhonen assumed the position in April. She has over 20 years of experience from private, public and third sectors in Finland and internationally. She has previously worked as the director of the Artists' Association of Finland.
