Post A Letter

Post A Letter is a campaign that unites people with a passion for writing letters and cards. Once a month, a meeting is held where letters are written and cards are made. The meetings are organized by Silja Bähni and Olivia Hübscher, who met each other at a Post A Letter event abroad and brought the idea back to Switzerland. The craft and writing materials are provided by the organizers. Each participant can send three letters free of charge – the stamps are sponsored by Swiss Post. The event, which thanks to the hard work of Silja Bähni and Olivia Hübscher has been held regularly in Switzerland since 2017 (currently in Berne and Fribourg), is also run in countries such as Denmark, Germany, New Zealand, Canada and Japan.

Festival de la correspondance

The Festival de la correspondance is an event dedicated to writing in all of its facets which is held in the picturesque mountain village of Mase, Valais. During the festival, the village is transformed into a unique setting: many villagers make their houses, gardens or barns available, helping writing to take pride of place and turning Mase into a hub of excitement and magic. The event gives expression to the beauty of writing – with letter boxes, envelopes, paper, stamps and pencils found throughout the village. Let Mase invite you to take a little more time for yourself. Time to sit down, find your inner peace and give some joy to someone dear to you. Time to write a letter or a card.
