In the courtyard of Stoa, hanging as a stage backdrop, you can find an artwork by Jade Lönnqvist (Untitled, 2020). This artwork was first commissioned by FFCH for an online celebration of Black History Month in 2020. We asked Jade to create an inclusive representation of Blackness—something their younger self would have wished to see in a public place.

Jade says: “I am a Helsinki-based illustrator who enjoys science fiction and gardening. Black representation, especially in Finland, is a subject very close to my heart. I was honoured to create this work for Feminist Culture House from a personal perspective.”
