I’m very excited to report about the project Art of Europe that took place on from the 4 to the 12 of July in Coma-ruga, a little town on the Spanish Mediterranean coast. Together with 2 other participants from Czechia we had the great opportunity to learn more about European multiculturalism, cultural diversity and inclusion and how to promote them through art.
Together with participants from Spain, North Macedonia, Greece, Bulgaria and Latvia we created a very good working and efficient team. Although we were from different age and background, we immediately created a good connection that lasted till the end of the project.
That’s also thanks to the great care and organisation of Marc and Vasco that proposed activities for our free time. Thanks to them, we had the opportunity to get to know a bit of the Spanish life. Already at the first evening we’ve been sitting together at the beach. The next one we went to see a football game in a bar. By the time Thursday, with our free afternoon came, we were able to organise a visit to Tarragona on our own, as a team. We have visited the monuments from antique times and enjoyed the traditional Spanish tapas at a local restaurant.
The program was well structured. The first day was assigned to getting to know each other. We have played some introduction games and learned to cooperate with each other. The next two days followed in the spirit of cultural diversity with group discussion and creating posters. After the free Thursday afternoon and our spontaneous trip, the last part of the project dedicated to our art creation.
The aim was to create an art piece promoting cultural diversity. At the and we’ve created multiple artworks! First of all we’ve created stickers and a stencil, that we printed on paper, then we walked through the city and displayed them on frequented places. Second, we’ve created a live statue on the beach. The final project was creating a video documenting our activities. You can watch it here
