Arts Lab 4.0: Month IV, Sara Torrijos - Lot of inspiration

December is my fourth month in Romania, during the last part of November we finished the Alternative Museum of Folklore, and the final exhibition has been incredible. I am really proud of my friends, they worked really hard and this is something that we could feel when they showed their final artwork. So for the exhibition of the Cucuteni, I was expecting the best, and of course, it was a really beautiful experience. We exchanged different roles during the exhibition and we created a really full journey to the Cucuteni civilization. One of the things that I most liked was the fact that we worked connecting, and also we exchanged a lot of inspiration with each other.

While I was preparing my final product for the last museum (Cucuteni Alternative Museum), working with the students of Garabet Ibrăileanu School, I finished my personal artwork and showed it in Espacio LaRaiz in Granada, Spain.

It is very exciting to realize how this time has made me change, I have also realized that I am a person with leadership skills, which I never had the opportunity to develop before as I am doing now. I am really proud of how Romanian culture influences me as an artist. 

I found a lot of inspiration in this country, and also, Mihaela is always putting forward new challenges that make us grow and have new experiences with the local community. She has proposed we continue this project until April and of course, I could not say no. This project makes me happier every day, my friends make me feel alive and full of creativity.

Sara Torrijos from Spain is doing a long-term volunteering project in our organisation, under Arts Lab 4.0, a project funded by European Solidarity Corps, a programme of the European Union.
