Event date

Please note: this event has been postponed by our partners out of an abundance of caution.

Fika [ˈfiːˌka] Swedish for a coffee break that’s more about socializing than drinking coffee. 

Join us for kaffe (coffee) and sweet treat to connect and discuss how Nordic culture and policies compare and contrast to those in the United States, particularly as it relates to social justice. This event is facilitated by Michelle Gislason and Fleur Larsen, social justice consultants and National Nordic Museum Members.

We will discuss the premise of the book The Nordic Theory of Everything: In Search of a Better Life. Subsequent meetings will do a deeper dive into the four key relationships outlined in the book: parenting and children, men and women, employees and employers, and government and citizens. 

In preparation for these conversations, please read the book, The Nordic Theory of Everything: In Search of a Better Life by Anu Partanen. We enthusiastically suggest purchasing this book from the Museum Store or another local bookseller.

Fika Pop-Ups are scheduled the first Thursday of every other month from 5:30–7:00pm in Freya. Our inaugural FIka Pop-Up will be this gathering!  

Cost: Free; RSVP appreciated
