Ceyda Berk-Söderblom, MiklagårdArts
“I am an independent arts manager, curator, festival programmer, entrepreneur, and public advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion. As its artistic director, I run MiklagårdArts, a facilitator and enabler for transnational and transcultural collaborations. I initiated collaborations with the established institutions of Finland, such as the National Museum of Finland, HAM, Amos Rex, Musica nova Helsinki, Aalto Arts, University of the Arts Helsinki, Helsinki Philharmonic etc., and curated projects abroad.
I like the whole idea behind Puistokatu 4 and its purpose to connect people from different practices and professional backgrounds. It was wonderful to be surrounded by like-minded people and be a part of a community.”
