Kati Laakso, Msc (Econ), named new Director of the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux.

The Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux is a Brussels-based organisation specialised in arts and culture and is part of Finland’s worldwide network of cultural and academic institutes. Kati Laakso moves to Brussels from the Finnish Institute in Japan where she was the Culture and Communications Manager. Laakso has, amongst others, previously worked as a consultant for cultural and creative activities at the Consulate General of Finland in New York and as coordinator of international media relations and satellite projects for the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 project. Laakso’s strengths lie in her expertise in the visual arts and design fields, her extensive international work experience as well as her skills in managing a diverse range of projects. 

The Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux’s current Director Aleksi Malmberg, M.Phil, took on his assignment in 2014. Malmberg will move on to become the General Manager of the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra in January 2018 and Laakso will take on her new role in February 2018.
