Finnish Village at The Lakes International Comic Arts Festival
How better to celebrate the centenary year of Finnish independence than at The Lakes International Comic Arts Festival’s Finnish Village?
The Finnish Village is focussing on the work and legacy of internationally-famous artist and writer Tove Jansson, featuring an archival exhibition on the life of Tove Jansson and screenings of Tove Jansson documentaries and a feature length Moomin animation.
There will also be an exhibition of the best of contemporary Finnish comics and a comics marketplace with Onni Mustonen from the Finnish Comics Society and artists Johanna Rojola and Petteri Tikkanen.
Don’t miss the chance to try out a proper Finnish Sauna (in a converted horsebox) or enjoy a cup of coffee at the pop-up café!
