All families are welcome to the storytelling and children’s literature celebration!


You will have the opportunity to participate in storytelling sessions in Arabic, Chinese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Somali, Ukrainian, and simplified Finnish.


Selkokulttuuri ry joins the programme with the Susurrador (“Whisperer”) workshop. Get creative and discover this special way of sharing stories and poems! Come with your family to decorate your own Susurrador, tell the stories you like, and listen to others’ stories in many languages. We will provide some texts in simplified Finnish for inspiration.

Selkokulttuuri team look forward to seeing you at the workshop and hearing about the stories you like. In our Satuhetki selkosuomeksi project we can help to record the stories important to your culture and language and also adapt them into simplified Finnish.


See the full programme to find a storytelling session in your language.
