#Mattimatkalla #Mattiutazik

Matti is a Finn who appreciates silence, peace and his own personal space. He is not a fan of small talk, and in social situations he actually wishes he could become invisible. Matti is the main character of comic strip series Finnish Nightmares by Karoliina Korhonen which features the greatest social fears Finns can face. He set off from the Finnish Institute in Norway in the beginning of 2017 and arrives soon to Budapest at the invitation of FinnAgora to be the special guest of the Eleven Ősz Bartók Béla Street Festival.
