Dear friends, Easter is coming and we wanted to share with you the workshop we had yesterday, which brought joy into our hearts: painting Easter eggs with hot wax, which is traditional in Romania. We wish you were here with us, we know that many of you would have enjoyed this activity!

Cine-ar fi crezut că e așa de dificil să încondeiezi un ou? De la pregătitul ouălor (spălat, golit - sunt foarte încăpățânate!) până la trasul unei linii drepte cu chișița (condeiul cu ceară)... Dar a meritat și le mulțumim Adei că ne-a învățat să încodeiem, Michaelei că ne-a învățat să facem coșulețe frumoase în care să punem ouăle încondeiate și lui Pușchi pentru minunata omletă cu spanac cu care ne-a răsfățat!

sooo many stories!

humansofnewyork.com "I got first place in an imagination contest! I had seven other kids on my team, and adults couldn’t help! We had to take a painting, and write a story about it.

The danger of a single story

Amazing TED talk about the power and danger of a single story.

ted.com Our lives, our cultures, are composed of many overlapping stories. Novelist Chimamanda Adichie tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice -- and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding.

These are the pictures from the lovely meeting we had with some of the students at the Faculty of Geography. As you can see we shared a lot of bright smiles in the middle of the beautiful photographs taken during the Workshop, we watched some videos and we remembered all the wonderful people we met this summer and all the amazing things we accomplished together!

Pe 29 octombrie Universitur s-a prezentat în fața studenților geografi. Am vorbit despre noi, despre două dintre proiectele noastre cu finanțare europeană – Image-in the community si ROOTS Training, despre P.E.T. Rafting Project ș.a. Am anunțat oficial și că vrem să creștem numărul universiturilor. :) Așa că dacă aveți veleități de grafician sau de traducător, sunteți interesați de posibilități de finanțare, scriere de proiecte, de bookcrossing sau pur și simplu vreți să aflați experiențele celor implicați în proiecte europene, lăsați un mesaj aici sau trimiteți-ne un mail!

This evening we're speaking about Image-in the community and other lovely projects we had this summer to the Geography students of the University of Bucharest. We want to share with them the great ways in which you can learn and better yourself no matter what age you are. Of course they are young and just starting out, so we're hoping what we have to share will inspire and motivate them to do everything they can to find their true interests and follow them with passion, just like all the wonderful people we've met this year!

Vă așteptăm cu drag marți, 29 octombrie, ora 19:00 în Facultatea de Geografie pentru a povesti aventurile noastre de peste vară. Vrem să vă povestim cm ne-am dat cu pluta pe Dunăre în P.E.T. Rafting Project, cm am învățat arta poveștilor alături de Alessio Di Modica și cm ne-am întâlnit datorită programelor Tineret în Acțiune și Grundtvig cu oameni frumoși de peste mări și țări
Și nu doar atât! Vrem ca data viitoare când mai facem lucruri frumoase să fiți și voi alături de noi, deci veniți să ne cunoaștem și să împărtășim idei și oportunități!

Photos from the itinerant storytelling performance in Corbi which took place on 14 september!

We prepared during the whole week for this, we had to manage first ourselves and our abilities to be able to give forward as much as we could. We wanted to show to the others our stories and Corbi stories, to show to the locals how important stories are for preserving the traditions and values. So we dressed up, took all our best stories with us and travelled on the village streets. We brought smiles, gained their attention and passed on our message. Hope to see you again, Corbi!

Marina Chirca. Moartea pentru care România nu va vărsa lacrimi

Dear friends, the 98 years old lady we visited during the project just died, but at least someone wrote a nice article in her memory. May she rest in peace!

adevarul.ro A murit Marina Chirca. Ar trebui ca România toată s-o plângă, oamenii să găsească în memoria ei măcar câteva clipe de pioasă aducere aminte, iar guvernul să-i organizeze funeralii naţionale. În schimb, cel mai probabil, n-aţi auzit de ea. Televiziunile n-au făcut nici măcar o ştire din asta: cui dra...

Image-in the community

Short workshop in Bucharest to go along with the Image-in the community exhibition. We discussed a few things about social photography, photovoice, the concept of good and bad and beauty and ugliness, rural vs urban space and we shared some photos and some views of our city.

Anyone interested in finding out more about social photography, space, place and identity can participate in the two-day (August 28 and 29) workshop and discussions we prepared together with our host.

From shambles to storytelling: Redefining repair in Greensboro, NC

Storytelling through repair :)

“I realized that by using a material other than brick to patch a brick sidewalk, I had revealed a story about the sidewalk, and also added a new one,” says Paul.” I did not erase all of the evidence of the damage. I left a clue to it, revealed it, while letting it still function, as it should.”

Making of the exhibit and the event istelf. Working hard for so many days certainly paid off and everyone participated in setting up the exhibit: the workshop participants, the project team, the village children and the school teachers. People from the local community and the mayor came to see it and gave us their feedback - everyone was excited! Even people from other villages came, including the mayor of Aninoasa, who was very keen on convincing us to do the same for them. Thank you all for your amazing work!

More traditiional living: we visited a traditional dairy farm, learned about milking cows and making cheese and then enjoyed the results of these great activities :) The afternoon was for finishing the work with the children - they still had some more photos to take around the village in order to show us what they think are the positive and the negative aspects in their community. Later in the afternoon we saw and discussed their photos together, then we went on to the final selection (and printing) for the exhibit.

16/07/2013

The day started with Petr's presentation about the Carpathian region and some great examples of rural development tools and strategies in the Czech Republic. Saturday was also the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, a very important day for the community of Corbi, so we asked the participants and the children to visit the fair for yet another exploration of local identity. Cameras in hand, they captured both the good and the bad, which we then discussed together. We also started the selection of materials for the final exhibit.
