Europeana Photography disseminated in Finland

The project coordinator prof. Fred Truyen and his assistant Sofie Taes were invited for a lecture about EuropeanaPhotography at the National Museum of Finland in Helsinki, during the Photo Archives Days.

The event was a very good occasion for disseminating EuropeanaPhotography project, and also Europeana, the European digital library, to national and international colleagues and curators, all of them involved and interested in the photo heritage.

Finland is not represented (... yet!) in the EuropeanaPhotography consortium but the event was useful to start a dialogue and relationships with representatives from the Finnish archives and museums.

Also, a nice visit to the Finnish Museum of Photography allowed the participants to enjoy a beautiful collection of postcard art.
