Open house at Kulturskolan inVärnamo

Open house at Kulturskolan inVärnamo

We knew about Kulturskolan since our first visit in Värnamo, because we’ve expressed our interest that our daughter will continue with her music adventure after we have moved to Sweden.

So we applied online to get her a spot for piano classes but we didn’t get an answer until today.

Kulturskolan open house

When Andreea came back from school and told me there is an open house during the weekend at Kulturskolan I was as happy as I could, because I knew we get to see all their classes and Andreea could try the instruments and why not, we could try to get her a spot.

So off we went and boy she tried them all: flute, trumpet, guitar, piano, double bass, drums, music production, voice singing, dance and clay modelling.

I think there is a place for every artist ar Kulturskolan.

Bonus video

I managed to sneak-capture her on video, performing Faded. For me it was a big surprise, I’ve never heard her singing this one. Maybe all the ours she spends on Youtube are worthy, in the end…

After our visit, we’ve managed to get a spot on the piano classes and also for the voice singing classes. So this visit was way better than just an email with the application. Great opportunity!

Swimming contest #inVärnamo

Swimming contest #inVärnamo

It looks like everything you need is available #inVärnamo. In less than 5 months I’ve managed to attend and photograph more sporting events than I’ve previously done in my life, so for this a big:

Thank you Värnamo, keep ‘em coming!

Last weekend I’ve attended a swimming competition, organised by the local swimming club named Värnamo Simsällskap.

Vidösternsimmet Sprint 2020

Our of all the sports I have attended, it seems the swimming is the most loved one, or at least most attended here in Värnamo.

The Simhall was full of people, both participants in the contest and public. Impressive!

Light manifestation inVärnamo

On November 20, Gummifabriken #inVärnamo decided to light up the autumn darkness with a light manifestation.

The Children’s Convention turns 30 and it will become part of Swedish law on January 1, 2020.


All the lanterns in the manifestation were created by children from preschools in Värnamo municipality.

The event took place at the entrance of the Gummifabriken.
