We celebrated a happy Midsummer with our friends from the folk dance group Malmö Folkdansare in Sweden. Together with spectators of our performances in Malmö, we danced around several midsummer trees. Thank you very much for the fantastic festive days; we are looking forward to see you again for the European Week in October!
On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of EFCO France, EFCO delegations from Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Ireland, Sweden, Russia, the Ukraine and Germany got together in Tarare near Lyon from June, 14 to 18, 2018. Christine Schillings, EFCO Youth president of Germany, represented the Sounding Windrose. She reported successful project days shaped by cordial international cooperation. Christine reported: “We are happy to maintain our friendships with the French groups „Crea’Danse company“ from Tarare and „Les Hirondelles du Forez“ from Neulise. Our special thanks goes to Claire Gattet who had organised the impressive jubilee.”
April 12, 2018: This was an important step: Last weekend we brought our European friends to the table and we can proudly say: Olpe, we are coming! Our 22nd “International Week” will take place in 2019, but from now on we will call it: European Folk Art & Culture Week.
