Published on Monday, 21st of September 2020

We can also discretely engage conflicting parties and create safe spaces to discuss sensitive issues even when official channels may be frozen”, says Senior Manager Sylvia Thompson in our video. Our status as an independent, Finnish actor is second of the 3 themes we will be discussing during our 20th anniversary year.
