The Scandinavian Cultural Society (SCS) was founded in 1985, to help celebrate Vancouver’s Centennial & Expo '86. At the time, it was incorporated and registered in Victoria as: The Scandinavian Festival Society. In June 1987, the name was changed to: The Scandinavian Cultural Society. The SCS strives to promote goodwill and understanding among Scandinavians, promote and carry out Scandinavian cultural events and activities, and encourage learning about Scandinavian culture. The Society represents the cultures of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
Subfonds reflects the Scandinavian Cultural Society’s (SCS) efforts to promote and support Scandinavian cultural events and activities in the greater Vancouver area, most notably the Scandinavian Festival 1986. Under SCS’s constitution, they hold executive meetings to also organize and promote other cultural events and communicate to their community through newsletters. SCS was founded to help celebrate Vancouver’s Centennial and Expo ’86; therefore, many of their records document the administration, communications, publicity, and promotions arising from planning the event as well as the event itself.
Subfonds is divided into four series: Events and activities, Publications, Administrative records, and Photographs.
