The Society for Estonian Culture in Berlin (KAMA) celebrates its second birthday. From 17‒18 March 2017, therefore, the Days of Estonian Culture or in other words ‒ KAMA2 will take place. After the first successful celebrations last year, a great new tradition has been born. The programme is packed with great events for both the Estonian-speaking and the international audience. Children of the Estonian School in Berlin will enjoy their own programme.
