The Centre for Creative Photography in Jyväskylä and Street Level in Glasgow were both founded in September of 1989. To celebrate this exchange projection programmes profiling work from each gallery will feature in evening screenings in the respective cities. This marks the first event in our developing relationships with photography organisations in Finland - an event in late September took place in Jyväskylä profiling work from Scotland and in late January 2020 a three day screening will take place with some work from Central Finland associated with The Centre for Creative Photography. A residency for a Scottish artist will be undertaken between February and March of 2020 in Oulu in Northern Finland, in partnership with the Northern Centre for Photography.
