Arts Lab 4.0: Month IV, Wasan Abusummaqah - Almost over

Another month, another report.

Here I am writing this monthly report with my mind thinking that I only have two months left here. In the past month, we did the Cucuteni alternative museum, it was fast and short this time, we had a short period to work on this exhibition, but we managed to do it like we always do. 

We had our Christmas and new year’s holidays; it was my first time experiencing Christmas outside my country and with people who celebrate it. We went to Cluj to celebrate the new year and it was some of my favorite days here in Romania, we danced, celebrated, and watched the fireworks lighting up the sky at 00:00.

Ataota and I had the Arabic intercultural night, we got the chance to talk about the Arab world in general, about our culture, our countries, and what matters most to us to clarify for foreigners about the stereotypes and other stuff. We also introduced them to our cuisine and dances.

Currently, we are working on a new topic, a new exhibition, which is about the Roma people and their culture. It was the most topic that I was excited to work on before I came here. 

Still can’t believe that I’m starting my fifth month and my journey here is almost over. All I can say is I have a lot to share when I’m going home. 

Wasan Abusummaqah is from Jordan and she 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.
