Rumble in the Jumble @ Modernista

Rumble in the Jumble

Cost: Free

Rumble in the Jumble was born in July last year. Inspired by British jumble sales and American thrift stalls, with a splash of Chinese characteristics thrown in for good measure, it has grown into a fabulous bazaar featuring its own unique mix of new, old and handmade goodies. We have seen ideas grow into businesses, crafts galore and people selling anything they can’t fit into a suitcase before they leave China for good. We have had ten-minute portraits, tarot card reading, buskers. And cake. Oh, yes, there has been cake.

So, with this in mind Rumble in the Jumble staff wanted to do something special to mark their very first birthday so on August 26th, they will be holding a Rumble in the Jumble’s 1st Birthday party at Modernista, 44 Baochao Hutong.

Well, not only will it have all the bells, bottles and bubbles you have come to expect from our usual brand of market, we will also be having a party afterward, with music, face painting from the Rumble crew, and competitions to win goodies from our fabulous vendors (and maybe some other people, too).

A voice for women’s rights and an advocate for equality, we are pleased to have as our special guest speaker, Ambassador Tania Romualdo. There is a Chinese saying: ‘Women hold up half of the sky.’ In reality this often means women are caring for the family along with holding down a career.

Despite all odds, Ambassador Romualdo has had a very successful career. As a single mother she has balanced life as a mother and the demands of a senior diplomat.

Ambassador Romualdo is a true advocate of women and the importance of equal opportunity for women. She will share with us her story, one that blends success, challenges and even times of facing adversity.

Tania Romualdo has been the ambassador to the People’s Republic China since 2015 and soon will be accredited as the Ambassador to Japan as well.

We invite you to join us on August 30th to hear Ambassador Romualdo’s inspiring story.
