Create Your Own Festival Experience!



You can join the new funky movement before the actual event, since everyone has a chance to join our communal decorative workshops where the recycled materials will be designed and formed into impressive pieces of art with the multi-talented artist Macoumba Ndiaye. These workshops will be arranged throughout the summer and you can join in whenever you want!

We will announce the next decoration workshop on this page in the beginning of August.

We’re open to new active people as well as organizational cooperation, so if you feel like joining us to make the year’s most fascinating multicultural city event together, let us know immediately. Now.

Hop on the Elephant and join the caravan!



We work closely together with many people and artists on the culture & arts scene, especially located in the Suvilahti area. We are also open to suggestions from anybody else!
