Breaking news! We delighted to announce that all the winners of the open call competition themed Courage will be exhibited at the Sanoma House from October 4-29, 2023. Free entry.

Sanoma House is open Mon-Fri from 7am to 8pm, Sat-Sun from 9 am to 8 pm.

We live in turbulent times: climate change, pandemic, war, and constant violation of human rights. All this calls for courage. Courage can come in many forms, whether it be the ability to face pain or grief with strength or the quality shown by those who take risks and face danger. According to the jury member Emanula Mirabelli, “courage is the primary engine to fight injustices all over the world and to conquer new achievements for everyone”.

Opening October 4, 2023 at 5 p.m.

The opening ceremony inaugurated by the Artistic Director of the festival Rafael Rybczynski, and speeches by renowned scholar and photographer Stefan Bremer and groundbreaking talent Svante Gullichsen.

The exhibition is supported by Finland’s biggest newspaper Helsingin Sanomat.
