Maija Fast was the main organiser of two Children’s Dream events with thousands of participants in Kannelmäki in 2014 and 2015. Maija collaborated with Kanneltalo and plenty of individual citizens and local companies to organise these events. It was a flow of people who wanted to participate and we had plenty of workshops, music, play, popup restaurants and a lot of fun. The events were inspired by the Dream Statue which was moved from Kallio to Kannelmäki by HAM Helsinki Art Museum in 2013 at the instigation of Maija Fast. The Dream statue started to live its own life and we launched plenty of activities around the theme of Dreaming Big in Kannelmäki. The Children’s Dreams were one manifestation of it with dreams of children being asked and fulfilled without budget but with a lot of collaboration and sponsors.
