The Continue the Story event centred around stories will be held for the first time at the National Museum of Finland on the eve of Kalevala Day, Wednesday, 27 February, from 4 pm to 7.30 pm.
The workshops start at 4 pm, and the event kicks off with a heart-warming opening ceremony under the frescoes in the central hall at 5 pm. The pop duo Ida Paul & Kalle Lindroth will perform at the opening ceremony, along with storyteller Wilson Kirwa, wailer Emmi Kuittinen and talented young people from the folk music department at Sibelius Academy, who will perform a polyphonic and multi-lingual piece.
The event will comprise storytelling in numerous story workshops around the museum, featuring stories about love, family, objects, skills and embarrassing situations – the entire spectrum of human life. The workshops will be hosted by experts who have their own stories on the theme up their sleeve.
Everyone is welcome to come and tell their story in the workshops! Admission to the event is free.
