In addition to guided tours, I have a long working experience with journalists from all over the world that I can help with my strong network. As well, I have the ability to organize traditional events like folk concerts.
Helping journalists along with their projects
I have been working on dozens of films, photo reportages, newspaper and journal articles all over the world. To carry out a story that best characterizes Kihnu, I developed my own traditional culture network.
The people, who are part of that network, have the know-how and skills of different angles of Kihnu culture. They can show or describe their skills, or they are just colourful personas in Kihnu culture.
There is also a price list that starts with 20 €/hour, 10 € per each extra hour. The topics that the network covers are handicraft, traditional music, church songs, seal hunting, fishing, traditional food, motorcycle riding etc.
I arrange the meetings with the above mentioned people and helps in translating, if necessary.
To have a view on the different projects Mare has been working on, please refer to Press Publications.
Organizing traditional events
It is also possible to order the performances of folklore ensemble Kihnumua and Kihnu Pillilapsed (school children that play traditional instruments, sing and dance).
The price for the organization of a folk concert is 180€.
The concert and teaching of traditional dances by Kihnu Pillilapsed (young students who play traditional music instruments, dance and sing) is 180€.
