Do you remember any ghost stories from your childhood? What stories do your clothes tell? What is your sauna biography like?
The Continue the Story event centred around stories was held for the first time at the National Museum of Finland on the eve of Kalevala Day, Wednesday, 27 February.
The Continue the Story event is organised by the Finnish Heritage Agency and the National Museum of Finland together with organisations involved in the circle of oral tradition. The event will be implemented as part of the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.
You can utilise one of the toolkits to help you set up a workshop wherever there are people who want to tell stories. The toolkits are intended for both workshop organisers and schools.
Cooperation partners include the Finnish Heritage Agency, Kalevala Women's Association, Finnish Literature Society, Society of Swedish Literature in Finland, Institute for the Languages of Finland, Kalevala Society, Samova Storytelling, Runosong-Academy, Karelian Youth League, Culture Hub Interkult, Association of Cultural Heritage Education in Finland, Citizen’s Forum, Talonpoikaiskulttuurisäätiö (Foundation for Finnish peasant culture), Finnish Sauna Society, Seurasaari Foundation, Haamu Kustannus, and Folk Music Department of Sibelius Academy.
