United Nations Women´s Guild Bazaar

This november we took part in the yearly United Nations Women´s Guild Bazaar. 
"Every year, the United Nations Women's Guild in Geneva, in collaboration with the Permanent Missions accredited to the United Nations, the Geneva government authorities and business community organizes an International Bazaar and Lottery to raise funds for disadvantaged children around the world".
The Icelandic booth drew a lot of attention. There you could find childrenswear, salt, books and history maps.
"Over the years, the Bazaar has become the premier event in the international community. The UNWG Bazaar attracts more than 6 000 visitors and raises approximately 300 000 CHF. International arts, crafts and foods stalls sell their wares and lottery tickets are on sale with over 200 fabulous prizes to be won."

Happy Summer

Today marks the official start of summer here in Iceland. Schools are closed and we celebrate, some of us even receive a little gift that has to do with summer, maybe a skipping rope or a kite.

There is also a Children´s Cultural Festival going on in Reykjavik so there is an unusual amount of activities to choose from.

 

The Festival is held now for the second time 17.-22. of April.  With almost 200 events to choose from the aim is to increase cultural interest with children.

The picture above is from the opening event where 1100 9-10 year olds danced in synchrony at the Harpa Concert Hall by the harbour.

There are so many activities to choose from, including: Lego workshop, kite factory, Biophilia music factory, Origami, Charlie Chaplin´s The Circus at the cinema and so on and so on...
