“Mikaelidagen”, or “Mickelmäss” as it is also called, was for a long time one of the most important celebrations of the year and marked the transition to the winter season in Sweden. At this point, the harvest was over and the storehouses were filled with more food than at any other time of the year. During these days, people would light candles again at night as days were getting shorter. The famous autumn market still exists in some places,” says Dream Orchestra Lövgärdet teacher Lisa Moberg.
The goal is for the members of the Young Leaders DO to be in charge of teaching everything they learned in the workshops to the smallest of the Dream Orchestra on Marathon Day on September 22.
September 29 is “Mikaelidagen”. Although, according to Lisa, it is still a day recognized and celebrated in some places such as churches, for example, it is no longer the great celebration that was held in the ancient farming society.
These workshops are part of the Storytelling Project carried out by Dream Orchestra, thanks to Signatur Stiftelsen.
