Sivuvalo Platform

About Us

We have been working since 2013 to scout for and showcase the works of Finland-based authors writing non-official languages. For this purpose Sivuvalo organizes discussion panels, workshops, exhibitions, and a range of experimental literary events. We aim to promote a synergy with Finnish literary institutions and cultural policy makers to cast light on the representation of diverse literature as a matter of equality. 


The current board members of Sivuvalo are:
author, journalist and translator Polina Kopylova, author and translator José Luis Rico Carrillo, translator Anne Ketola and author and cultural producer Roxana Crisólogo, who is Nordic coordinator in NOXLit.
