Meeting Point: Pictures website presents photographs and stories on the encounters between cultures and people as well as on memories of both everyday life and celebration. What do food traditions, seasons or the area we call home mean to us and how are the practices related to them preserved, or do they change over time? Which moments and events emerge as important? What makes a good life?

The exhibitions on the Meeting Point: Pictures website have been produced as part of the EU-funded CultureLabs project, which enhances the participation of groups with migration background in cultural activities. During the project, Russian-speaking groups and a multicultural women’s group discussed their memories and things important to them through the photographs of the Picture Collections of the Finnish Heritage Agency as well as through their own photographs.
