Foreign Ministry Open to Public on Culture Night

Iceland’s Ministry for Foreign Affairs will open its doors to the public on Culture Night in Reykjavík on Saturday between 2 pm and 6 pm to introduce the ministry’s projects and work environment. Foreign Minister Ingibjörg Sólrún Gísladóttir will greet visitors.

The public will be able to walk around the building, browse through brochures and books containing different information, visit the offices of the ministry’s employees—including Gísladóttir’s office—and talk to them about their work, reports.

The main emphasis will be put on introducing the ministry’s services to Icelanders living abroad.

Culture will also play a central role; works by artists who have been involved in projects abroad will be on display on the ministry’s walls, including photographs from Africa by IR’s Páll Stefánsson.

The Icelandic Crisis Response Unit has also established a special exhibition on their projects for the occasion.

The minstry has something planned for the youngest visitors as well, who can play in a bouncy castle, participate in a drawing contest and have their faces painted with one of the world’s flags.
