A Very Scandinavian Evening: Swedish Artists Carl and Karin Larsson

LarssonDate: Fri­day, May 29, 2015
Time: Doors open at 6.30 pm; Sand­wiches 7 pm; Talk 8 pm
Price: $5 per sand­wich
Con­tact and RSVP:  swedishculturalsociety.ca@nullgmail.com

Carl Larsson’s illus­tra­tions for his book Ett Hem (A Home) more than a cen­tury ago defined a “Swedish Style” that was light, colour­ful, infor­mal.  It seems obvi­ous now that his wife Karin was inti­mately involved in cre­at­ing the rooms Carl used as a stage for their family’s dramas.

“Swedish Style” with spe­cial ref­er­ence to the con­tri­bu­tions of Karin Lars­son, an illus­trated talk.

A piece of but­tered rye bread with some­thing laid on, with meat, fish, cheese and top­pings.  It sounds sim­ple enough but the Smør­re­brød, the Dan­ish open sand­wich, is Dan­ish every­day prac­tise raised to one of the great con­tri­bu­tions the world’s culi­nary arts.

“Dan­ish Style”.  Smør­re­brød godt belagt med meget pynt (Dan­ish sand­wiches well stacked and dec­o­rated) $5 per sand­wich, bar ser­vice available.

In coop­er­a­tion with the Swe­den House Soci­ety and the Swedish Cul­tural Society

Tom Nyberg, Hon­orary Con­sul of Fin­land in Van­cou­ver presents
Fin­land in 2015: Fac­ing New Eco­nomic & Polit­i­cal Cross­roads
Fin­land has built its wealth over the past 50 years on key indus­tries of pulp, paper and tele-communications. Dig­i­tal­iza­tion has dra­mat­i­cally trans­formed all legacy indus­tries and sud­denly the coun­try faces another mas­sive indus­trial trans­for­ma­tion. How are old indus­tries meet­ing the new chal­lenges and how is the new dig­i­tal indus­try of Angry Birds, Clash of Clans and oth­ers con­tribut­ing to new growth?

While mas­sive eco­nomic chal­lenges claim atten­tion, the polit­i­cal land­scape also has turned around and the rela­tion­ship between the West and Rus­sia has many unan­swered ques­tions for the future.
