Arts Lab Report: Artistic May
In May, we started to create workshops on an artistic theme such as painting, music, photography and dance, which serves to stimulate the creativity of students and young people. Also, they will give them the possibility to express themselves artistically. It is also an effective way to promote non-formal education.
The objectives of the association and the project include combating social discrimination, alcoholism and violence. These issues were also addressed during the time we worked with other volunteers from other associations, who collaborated in our projects for a week, giving us the opportunity to get to know each other and to identify the different social problems of the country without neglecting the rights and duties of the volunteers.
We had a training in the capital, Bucharest, for the professional growth of the volunteer which allowed us to meet people from all over the world. During this training we had the chance to express our thoughts on our tasks and we talked to arrive at solutions regarding the different projects. Moreover, we had the opportunity to see the diversity of the other countries, that allowed us to enrich our vision of the world.
Currently the association wishes to create a new recreational space for young people and thanks to this project, the willpower and passion of the participants it is possible. It will be useful for improving society, to create a better future for this country and the entire rural area.
