The Colourful Pen and Klang at Helsinki Book Fair 2016

brokiga_bokmWrite in many languages” was the motto for the seminar The Colourful Pen at the book fair in Helsinki. The participants in the seminar Klang used both their own and each others’ texts and the event became a combination of writing, reading, singing, creating rhythms and visual expressions.

The participants in both seminars came from a dozen countries and the managed despite the loud environment – Sunday is the liveliest day at the book fair – to write exciting texts and read them to each other.

The event was organised by Colorit ry. rf. in cooperation with Lecti Culture Centre. The Colourful Pen was supported by The Swedish Cultural Fund in Finland and Klang was supported by Oskar Öflund Foundation.oskaroflund_logoSvenska_kulturfonden_logo_horisontell_svart_RGB
