Second Sight

Copper Smithy, Fiskars

Second Sight is part of the cross-border Nordic Delight project and the Commemorative Year 1809 events, celebrating the strong historic ties between Finland and Sweden. The exhibition is a meeting of the arts linking old areas of Finnish settlement in Sweden and Swedish-speaking regions in Finland, an encounter of almost 60 artists and artisans from both countries.

Second Sight is an important aspect of Nordic Delight’s series of events encompassing exhibitions, talks, seminars, courses, cultural programmes and study trips across national borders. The Rural Academy, which has joined the project, has been an open centre of meetings and encounters serving innovations and the further development of skills.
In the summer of 2009 Second Sight was on display in Nora, Sweden.
