Huh, what a summer Runomaraton/Poetry Marathon had!



This year is the 100th anniversary of the independent Finland and Runomaraton tried to live up to the expectations. Our summer was busy – the annual Runomaraton event in June with plenty of programs: poetry (of course!), literature, music, dance, workshops, poetry video, competitions, foreign guests from Japan – the smell of culture was all around Lahti city for a weekend.

But we knew, if we have given something to the culturehungry ears, we should prepare something to the eyes too: the two-week long ART Lahti 2017 exhibition with the works of 10 different Finnish artists was held in August, in the very centre of the city. The exhibition offered wide range of visual arts: sculptures, naïve art, serigraphic art, fingerpainted pictures about Lahti etc.

Although we did not forget about the main profile of the association. As a summer closing event we held our monthly Poetry Café event at the last day of the exhibiton – with some extra flavour.
Besides the presentation of the poetry book of Anita Fagerholm, the visitors were able to witness an exceptional live-dance performance named ’Searching for signal’ by dancer Meri-Tuuli Risberg, sculptor Sami Leutola and flutist Rainer Risberg.

We are ready for the autumn, bringing more Poetry Café events, exhibition for the cold winter days and something big for the next year!


Keep updated, keep cultured!
