Welcome to Finnposium

Finlandia Foundation National brings you Finnposium, a variety of online chats, webinars, musical and other presentations related to Finland and Finnish culture in the United States.

The internet allows us to create a kind of virtual symposium enjoyed by the ancient Greeks: a post-banquet program of music, conversation, dancing and drinking.

The refreshments are up to you, but FFN strives to keep you entertained and informed with its wide range of programs. They will, with rare exception, be available indefinitely at the FFN YouTube channel.

Check for events at the FFN web calendar and Facebook page, and sign up for the free, monthly E-News for alerts on new programming.

Here’s a sampling of the programs available online at our YouTube channel; click below:
