ASF + Scandinavia House Scandinavia House, home to the American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF), presents a wide range of exhibitions, films, concerts, lectures & family programs dedicated to contemporary Nordic culture.
(79)

Established in 1911 by Danish-American industrialist Niels Poulson and a group of other forward-thinking leaders from business and education, the American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) was the first international non-governmental society to have as its sole purpose the development of goodwill through educational and cultural exchange. It was designed to meet the needs of its time through fellowships, scholarly exchange, exhibitions, and publications. These programs have grown over the years, and along with the cultural programs at Scandinavia House: The Nordic Center in America, have provided a comprehensive platform for ongoing international exchange between the United States and the Nordic countries. This international work is at the heart of the Foundation’s mission. Each year, ASF awards over $800,000 in fellowships and grants to individual students, scholars, professionals, and artists for study and research in the United States and abroad. To date, some 30,000 Americans and Scandinavians have participated in these and other ASF programs of study, research, or practical training. In October 2000, ASF opened Scandinavia House as a showplace for Nordic culture and life. Since its founding, it has welcomed over 1.5 million visitors, who have come to enjoy exhibitions, performances, lectures, and more. Scandinavia House was financed by the generosity of more than 300 donors from the U.S. and abroad, including individuals, corporations, and foundations, as well as the Nordic governments and the Nordic Council of Ministers. Scandinavia House: The Nordic Center in America, the leading center for Nordic culture in the United States, offers a wide range of programs that illuminate the culture and vitality of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. Scandinavia House offerings include diverse exhibitions and film series, as well as concerts and other performances, readings, lectures, symposia, language courses, and children’s activities. Designed by the internationally renowned Polshek Partnership Architects (now Ennead Architects) and inaugurated in October 2000, Scandinavia House is the headquarters of the American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) and the site of ASF’s cultural and educational programming.

Race, Identity & Belonging in the Nordic Countries — Panel Discussion

On January 21, American-Scandinavian Foundation hosted a panel on “Race, Identity, and Belonging” in the Nordic countries with panelists Elizabeth Löwe Hunter (Ph.D. Candidate, African American Studies, UC Berkeley), Jasmine Kelekay (Ph.D. candidate, Sociology, UC Santa Barbara), and Susani Mahadura (journalist and filmmaker), with moderator and ASF Fellow Ethelene Whitmire (Professor/Chair, Department of Afro-American Studies, University of Wisconsin – Madison). During the conversation, they explored issues related to the present-day realities of ethnic and national belonging in the Nordic countries.

Due to the high level of engagement during the chat for this panel, we invite interested viewers or audience members unable to attend to chat and discuss during the video's premiere. It will remain available to stream immediately afterward.

This panel continues a series on inclusion and ethnicity in the Nordic countries including the September 2020 discussion "Equity, Inclusion, and Immigration in the Nordic Countries" and January 2021 discussion "Race in the Colonial Past and Present," now available to stream.

Please share, we need all the help we can get! Jafet J. Rytkonen was born in Finland in 1879 and came to Negaunee MI to work in the iron mines in 1902. However, he quickly changed professions and became an entrepreneur. He built the Historic Vista Theater/PAAC in 1925-1926. This theater is well loved by its small community of Negaunee, Iron Town USA. Many updates had been completed and many more were on the cusp of happening until Covid-19 shut everything down. After recent heavy rains the roof drains clogged causing water to pool, the massive weight of the standing water took down the entire roof over the auditorium. The theater has been a home for so many struggling for a place to belong. Producing plays, musicals, readings, pageants, fundraisers, both showing and making movies, youth productions, concerts, workshops, and much more! Even producing and performing a traveling adaptation of the Kalevala back in 2009! Please help save the building before the winter snow hits! Any amount is helpful, thank you for your time and support, it's appreciated more than you know!

Hope you can join us next Monday at NYC's fave spot for music Joe's Pub at The Public for the US Debut of Spellemannpris winning Saami yoik artist Marja Helena Fjellheim Mortensson
Norwegian Sami artist Marja Mortensson, who was just awarded the 2019 Spellemannspris, will make her US Debut at Joe's Pub on June 10 in NYC. Marja is an extraordinary Saami yoiker and singer from Norway who was born into a reindeer herding family. Marja is part of a renaissance of Sami culture in Northern Europe, and she is dedicated to keeping her ancient and endangered language, culture and music alive. She is fluent in her Southern Sami language of which less than five hundred people speak. By studying historical recordings from multiple museums and archives she has relearned some of her people’s old, traditional yoiks – songs that have been silent for far too long. The unique soundscape created by the trio stems from a deep understanding and adherence to traditional yoiks and their melodies and brings in contemporary elements. The trio includes one of Norway’s most famous brass players and composers, Daniel Herskedal, on tuba/bass trumpet, and outstanding percussionist Jakop Janssønn.
