Music Finland commences operations
The unification of Music Export Finland and the Finnish Music Information Fimic is in the home stretch. Music Finland, the new organization, is now operational. From Monday, June 11 staff, projects and activities will communicate as Music Finland. The new visual image is designed by Helsinki-based creative studio Leroy.
This means that, amongst other things, email addresses will become firstname.lastname@example.org and all bulletins, newsletters and other communications will be sent on behalf of Music Finland.
The websites of Music Export Finland and Fimic will function as before until the autumn, and they will continue to be key communications channels for all ongoing projects. Alongside these a temporary site at www.musicfinland.fi will launch on Monday, June 11 highlighting Music Finland’s current and past activities.
Music Finland’s new full website is timed to go public in September 2012 and will offer service in both Finnish and English.
Music Export Finland and the Finnish Music Information Centre Fimic would like to thank all their partners and friends. Music Finland picksup where these two talented and dedicated organizations left off –with a refreshed feel and as much passion and enthusiasm for Finnish music as ever.
