Heljä, is in charge of the planning, development and implementation of communications on behalf of the Foundation. She was previously Director of Communications for Frame Contemporary Art Finland and the Korjaamo Culture Factory. “I’ve noticed that, in terms of communications, it helps if you try to foster two aspects of yourself: liking change and being interested in just about everything going on in the world around you.”
Heljä Franssila will start as Kone Foundation’s Head of Communications on 19 June.
“As an enabler of bold departures in art and knowledge, the Kone Foundation has one of the noblest missions I’ve ever heard of. Through its grants, the Foundation has the power to have a broad influence on Finnish society. It is inspiring and fun to work for a Foundation on the brink of a new phase, as the move to the Lauttasaari Manor approaches.”
Welcome to our team, Heljä!
