StArt with your Mind!
Part of the project are four international EVS volunteers –Zarja, Cecile, Christina and Pepe- and four local volunteers –Alma, Andreea, Ecaterina and Ovidiu- from Minte Forte. The project seeks to promote personal development and provides the participants with resources to improve their mental health, using art as a medium as well as non-formal education methods.
After many trainings and weeks of preparation in October, last November we finally began the first stage of our project: facilitating workshops at a local school for children. After this phase we will work with adolescents and then in the final two months with adults.
There are still five more months to go and a lot things to discover. In the next article you will read more on our insight into our working processes and the first phase of the project: holding workshops at Horea School for children aged 12 to 13 years.
