Kulture Day

Once a year the Swedes are allowed celebrate Kulture….well that’s what i thought when I heard about ‘Kulture Day’. Turns out we are allowed culture on other days of the year too.  But last Saturday was a day where the whole city comes out to celebrate the arts, clubs and music of the city.   There was the American Car Club which I posted about a couple of days ago, here are some pics of some of the other sights……old school dj’ing, live graffiti and the normal colourful carnival sights.  As a newbie to the city it was great to see all the other things that are going on in this (smaller) city.  For me the highlight was the opening of the new art school precinct.  I’ve included a couple of pics of our visit to the opening exhibitions but I’ll be going back to visit and really shoot the hell out of that facility.  Hope you enjoy the pics of Umea in the sunshine!
