Feel Helsinki: Frida Cows

Saturday, June 8, 2019 - 15:00 to 16:00
Music Centre, Päälämpiö
Free entry
Drag Artist Frida Cows wants to challenge the current consumerist culture and to reflect on how it’s jeopardising our human rights.

"The idea for Frida stemmed from pure interest in the art of drag. There is something beautiful about the way drag artistry questions and breaks the norms, roles and taboos concerning sexuality and gender and encourages us to love ourselves and others. According to Frida, the most significant right that we can have is adequate living conditions, because they’re no longer self-evident as a result of human activity. Frida Cows represent an alternative for a more sustainable future. "


Feel Helsinki is a new urban festival for the whole family, taking place at the Helsinki Music Centre on 8 June. Uniarts Helsinki organises well over a thousand events for the public on a yearly basis, but Feel Helsinki is the first opportunity to enjoy the talents of the university’s students and alumni in one place through a day-long event. The festival has program that is especially tailored for children.

Feel Helsinki invites people to come together and engage all of their senses by enjoying food, wine, art and meaningful discussions. The main partner in the event is the Viini magazine, which will turn the Helsinki Music Centre into a hub of interesting pop-up restaurants, offering delicious menus.
