This page is for friends, family and people who know me in various contexts and they like me and my work to various degrees. It is my birthday in February and very often people jump on my FB page, phone and inbox with tons of wishes for good things and happiness…well this year I want to state to everybody that my happiness and my wellbeing depend on those of my association. If this means something for the people making wishes to me please read the next lines.
This year I turn 30 and I decided to give it to the organization of my heart A.R.T. Fusion which is based in Romania but has global impact (literally)!!! I am one of the founders, board member and helper in any way needed (based on my expertise and experience) for their impact across continents. I have bean with the organization for all its existence and I saw it grow, develop and transform itself into a strong structure aiming and succeeding at empowering and activating young people and most importantly to change people’s mentalities and attitudes (which is one of the hardest things to do).
We master together a range of methods that develop global mind-sets and I can say from experience that they work and we changed thousands of people’s lives!!! Theatre of the Oppressed, Living Library, Global Education. Non-formal Education in general, Street Campaigning and we aim high – to globally activate people around us – not an easy task and not many of us are doing it to be honest – that’s why our work often is challenging and hard but VERY much needed! We do have a website : www.artfusion.ro with our projects, results, FB page, videos from projects, etc. - altough the better version of it will be launched in March!
The video you see is from our last project in Europe and Africa that used Forum Theatre and had more than 1000 direct beneficiaries (at the last count - after the movie was made) and I was one of the consultants and trainers in the project!!!
1-For any questions about my attachments and promotion of A.R.T. Fusion as well about our work I will be happily responding and clarifying any such inquires or issues if they are.
2-We always need to co-finance for our projects as no donor that we regularly work with finance 100% our efforts. Our co-finance usually comes from our own resources, donations, and different small partnerships around. The money raised with this friendly call is for one month of rent and all utilities paid for our office as these are rarely part of the financer’s eligible costs.
3-If you want to support my cause and you don’t want/cant to use this website but to personally give it to me – contact me!
