From rugby to social empowerment in Romania

@ VOL 26 ON APR 09, 2015

Lucian Mircescu is actively involved in development matters in Romania. A few years ago, he launched the Rugby Club Aurora Baicoi Foundation, which he is using now as a social development platform.

Last year he organised the club's first summer school, where he spent one week with children from 8-14, teaching them maths and English with Duolingo and the Khan Academy.

It's a project that is gaining more and more attention. His story can be one of social empowerment and community participation in the context of the Romanian migration taking place after the country gained European Union membership.

Some of the children in the club simply grow up without any parents, who are working abroad. The children are rarely encouraged to focus on their education and to pursue careers that require studying - which only repeats an eventual poverty cycle.

Ein Sport für alle - Rugby im Ländle

@ VOL 12 ON MAR 02, 2017

Die Core Values sind: Integrität, Solidarität, Leidenschaft, Respekt und Disziplin. Diese bilden die Basis. Am Platz. Aber auch abseits vom Platz. Jede und jeder kann mitmachen. Jede Position erfordert andere Qualitäten. Es verbindet. Von was ist die Rede? RUGBY! Zur "Glückseeligkeit" fehlt Claudia Korizek und ihrer Mannschaft nur noch die sportliche Heimat. Ein Platz, auf dem sie ihre Spiele und Trainings abhalten können. Rugby in Vorarlberg. Ein Sport für alle ist im Kommen!

Playing by the rules and sticking to the shortest route between points A and B was how Melanie Bennett intended to win the game of Life. Turns out 'winning' has a different definition and the route is more convoluted.

Lucid dreaming, intuition, augmented reality and satelitelaunching all at Aalborg #12

90 people attending in an attentive atmosphere and opened by 3D graphic Benny Mathiesen. This time he shared his thoughts, experiences and knowledge of lucid dreaming - fascinating and fun - so everybodys attension was caught. Bo Nicolaisen from Platform 4 talked of a collaboration between thr art & tech people in Aalborg, one of the worlds best animation schools situated in Viborg and Filmværkstedet in Århus - the Bemudacollaboration give artists opportunities to benefit from workshops, knowledge and projects from all tree places. Sandro Masai is both dancer, choreographer and educated from Aalborg University in art & technology. He's making an art project based on augmented reality - at a summer art event in july called Bunkerlove at Denmarks large west coast beaches, where bunkers from 2. worldwar still lie in the sand. Before the break Ellen Raunsmed is researching in intuition at the university and shared her knowledge and experiences from seminars held together with artists, philosophers and dancers. The break kept people chit-chatting and networking - among a bunch of cool women in rollerskates from Aalborg Rollerderby - and bly me it's like rugby ON ROLLERSKATES for women!!! The first slot after the break was taken by artist and a men who pocesses imense knowledge art critic Gorm Spaabæk. He is the man behind a project where Nordjyske - the local paper - hires artists to create i piece FOR the paper inspired by local stories from the area. Lars Ditlev Johansen is educated actor an directs a piece called "A walk in the dark" about meeting life and death - and the theaterpiece will also be part of Bunkerlove inviting the audience onto the beach at night and into the bunkers. He read beautiful pieces of the drama - for me a very moving moment. And then came the complete fun - in the name of PechaKucha variaty in content - there came a whole team of Rollerderbygirls presenting their passion for the game! Brilliant pianist and composer - art & technology student Dominik Blasko finished the evening both talking about composing, making different art installations AND playing one of his pieces - a beautiful dot to a wonderful evening. See you in september :-)
