"Youth work eco-system” was the first project I took part in this year. This Lernlabor and Logos NGO conference in the Alpujarras (Spain) was a collective space where members of both organisations and people who collaborate with them gathered together for exchange of ideas between organisations, also some outdoors activities and some time for just being with each other.
The past year I collaborated with both organisations with some projects including training courses and art workshops such as: "Reforesting minds. Artistic practices for ecological restoration and collective resilience", "Co-creating Remedies.Collective Art for a Shared Present " and "Sharing is Caring". And this year we have more to come, check on this blog for more news.
I share some images of the outdoors collective drawing/painting we had during those days. This simple but profound collective exercise of representing the landscape around us in a piece of paper was just an attempt to capture the moment between oneself and the landscape. Those images represent a quiet moment of that deep connection which I love profoundly as it shows the power of creating despite any previous experience or knowledge. It is a form to learn more about ourselves, about Nature and the natural transformations.
“The relation between what we see and what we know is never settled. Each evening we see the sun set. We know that the earth is turning away from it. Yet the knowledge, the explanation, never quite fits the sight.”
― John Berger, Ways of Seeing
