The three days when Polish, Estonians and Swedes worked with setting future missions and visions for traditional music around the Baltic Sea have now been concluded. After getting to know each other personally we dedicated Wednesday morning to get to know each other professionally when all organisations presented their work and projects. In the afternoon we collected all possible needs on a common “platform” where we in the future may collaborate with activities concerning traditional music.
In the evening Folkteatern invited to a pub and many folkmusic interested in Blekinge came to play, dance and talk to our international guests about folkmusic. Several new contacts and friendships were established.
We could never have accomplished this without help from local businesses such as Mandeltårtan, where we stayed in the fantastic B & B, Café & matsalar who served us wonderful food, CELA and Office4all for equipment and Folkteatern who rented us the conference room and opened the pub for us.
