Kolibrí is a unique multicultural, free and open art festival for the most diverse, plurilingual and intergenerational audiences. It will take over cultural centres and libraries in the Helsinki metropolitan area from 23rd to 27th of September 2020.

Kolibrí program combines a number of activities, ranging from workshops, storytelling, performances, exhibitions, debates for the whole family from babies to teenagers.  On this 5th anniversary of Kolibrí we will travel to the AMAZONIA, the heart of the World. We’ll get to know and be amazed by its biodiversity, the variety of its indigenous communities and their ancestral knowledge and cultures. Also, we’ll figure out the impact of the climate change this way, and together look after this wonderful heart.

And joining this cultural celebration, PALOMA VALDIVIA, author and illustrator of children’s literature, will arrive all the way from Chile.

All the activities will focus on sharing, starting from  ancestral, artistic and cultural knowledge and its expressions to the most recent technological and scientific advances. There are no language barriers to experiencing our Festival!
