Last Wednesday, we hosted another Open Living Room event in collaboration with KulturCafé at Kulturhuset Grand – Kulttuuritalo Grand. Our special guests were Kaisa Maria Krisangi Leka and Christoffer Leka, Graphic Designers of the Year 2022 in Finland. They are also book writers, illustrators, and adventurous bike and kayak travelers. During the event, they shared their incredible 5,000 km bike journey from Canada to the USA, which took them 2.5 months. Their story was filled with various experiences, including extremely challenging weather, interesting encounters, among them with bears, and unexpected help and support during moments of despair. Not everyone is as brave and adventurous as them, but thanks to our guests, we all gained more inspiration and motivation for embarking on such adventurous experiences!
This time, our event was conducted in Swedish, so all 23 of our guests were either native Swedish speakers or students of the language. We would like to express our gratitude to our special guests and to everyone who brought their positive energy and good spirits to share with us.
Stay tuned for our next event in October!
