Nordic House, Fall 2022
The Swedish American Museum are working together with the Nordic Consulates (Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland) to present The Nordic House – a place that embodies Nordic culture, business, and sensibility. Visitors will be able to see Scandinavian design and décor, buy well-made, fashionable, sustainable products, and soak up the art and music at exhibits and events. They can come in for the Swedish cinnamon buns, the Norwegian chocolate, the Icelandic water, the Finnish rye bread, the Danish pastries, and the coffee – always the coffee. The Nordic House will reflect the important shared priorities of the Five Nordic Countries: Equality, Sustainability, Peace, Climate, Arts and Culture, and Business Promotion.
This is a short term project between Fall 2022 and end of the year. The City of Chicago is working on locating and sponsoring the space in downtown Chicago. The sponsorships will help facilitate expenses for staffing, special events, exhibits, and more. Please help us show Chicago what the Nordic Countries can offer.
Event sponsor $1,000 – $2,500
Exhibit sponsor $3,000 – $5,000
