World Village Festival attracts roughly 80 000 visitors to Kaisaniemi Park and Railway Square over the weekend. As a partner, you are a visible ally in working for a just world.
The festival offers CSOs and other organisations a chance to showcase their work and highlight the issues they are passionate about. Partners have an opportunity to reach our audience of thousands of people interested in global solidarity, multiculturalism, civil society action and ethical consumption.
Organisations benefit from partnership in many ways:
- The festival is an excellent place to gain new members, attract volunteers or bolster their self-financing.
- Authorities and other organisations can use the festival to get in touch with citizens as well as target groups that are harder to reach otherwise.
- For companies, the festival provides an opportunity talk about their corporate responsibility efforts and to strengthen their image as a societal actor.
How to participate?
There are several ways to get involved. As an exhibitor, you can present your organisation’s work, whether it’s at a standard stand or an impressive large exhibitor stand. You can also participate in producing talks or the cultural programme.
Advertisement space is available in the festival magazine, which reaches tens of thousands around the Capitol Region in May, and on the large LED screens placed on the festival area over the weekend. Our various cooperation packages may also be tailored to your needs.
You can also make factual and cultural programme proposals for the festival. Read more of programme cooperation.
During the year, the festival hosts workshops and briefing events that provide an opportunity to exchange ideas, build networks and make future plans with others.
