Arts Lab 4.0: Month V, Cihan - Strage feeling

And we are in our fifth month. It sounds weird, but it's unbelievable that the project is now ending. I am in a strange feeling between the sadness that it will end and the happiness of the wonderful memories I now have. I will remember this beautiful experience with wonderful feelings.

As for the topic of work this month. We started our work by watching documentaries on the Holocaust and what happen during that time in Iași county. For one week, we held art activities with students at the "Moldova High School", a school with a high concentration of visually impaired children. When we first met the students at school, I asked all of them as a group to write a poem about how they felt about the Jewish history in Târgu Frumos.

In this way, a whole school wrote a poem together. Then we composed and recorded this poem together with the students who chose the music workshop. The result it is a great song. The youngsters were truly incredibly talented. They did a great job. Then we gave a concert with this song on the school stage, after a very enjoyable and productive week full of emotions.

Together with our teammates, we attended an event where we met with other volunteer friends in Romania. This event was in Bucharest. And it took three days. Afterwards, we made a short trip to other cities for a few days and returned to our town, Târgu Frumos.

We have started working on our exhibition that we will organize this week. For the people I will play a small concert of works by Jewish composers on the day of the exhibition. I hope it will be a good event.

Cihan is from Turkey and he is doing a long-term volunteering project in our organisation, under Arts Lab 4.0, a project funded by the European Solidarity Corps, a programme of the European Union.
