World Village Festival, Helsinki, Finland - 23rd May 2009

By: Delenna

This is the World Village Festival held annually in Helsinki! This year, which is the 10th time this festival is held,  it starts from the side of the Central Railway Station and continues as usual to a park further away (Kaisaniemi Park). There was many performers (music, dance, art) from Finland and abroad, food from Africa and Asia etc, charity/volunteer work organizations, craftsmen selling their stuff, UN, politics, world books... etc etc! This years main theme was the climate.

We took pics when we first arrived, before there was public - as you can see the pics that were taken after the public arrived it's very crowded. The weather was horrible! It rained so much we had a pond on our feet  most of the time (the roof didn't hold). I helped my host at "her stand" (a small organization that does charity for children). I sold some lottery tickets with Alfie, Gary and Leonard. My host had made some of the prizes!

We were there the whole day. Fortunately we didn't have to stand at one place the whole time, The stand was in one huge tent called the "market of possibilities tent" and there were exhibitors from child sponsorship, volunteer work, development cooperation plus a "general section". We also saw Signmark perform! He's a deaf (yes deaf!) rapper (hip hop is their official "genre" but my host thinks "hiphopper" sounds kinda funny - she doesn't know much about music...)! He raps with a few other guys who do the same rap in Finnish and/or English and then there's the dj. Signmark himself raps in Finnish sign language. It was cool! They had so much fun on stage! If you check their/his website you find some of the lyrics in German too  :o

When we left by buss my host took a quick shot of me and the Opera House. Then I fell assleep...
