Forum for Culture and Religion FOKUS

Forum for Culture and Religion FOKUS was founded in 1947. Among its founding fathers were teachers from the University of Helsinki and the Technical University of Helsinki, cultural personalities from the Church as well as artists and scholars.  We wish to contribute to the ongoing discussion in society and to increase the interaction between culture and society. At the center of all activity we find values, ethical questions and an assessment of different cultural phenomena. From the very beginning, FOKUS has striven to be non-denominational and ecumenical. Since 1980's FOKUS has organized a Culture Forum every other year.

FOKUS builds bridges between cultures and religions via discussions, exhibitions, art and publications.
