Blog November 2019

Dear readers,

November was a very attractive month. The first week, we went to see Joker at the movies with Sedmi Glas. I really like the performance of the main character during this film and the photography. This film illustrates how easy it is to go crazy in this modern and crazy world.
We were also invited to a training session with young Erasmus volunteers to present the European volunteered programme. It was an enriching experience for me because I was able to practise my English in front of a young audience. On Wednesday, I helped Kaja with the installation of the retrospective exhibition of Pekarna's actions. We made a selection from Gregor Sabolir's photographs to have a coherent exhibition. It was a pleasant moment and Kaja and I were very happy with the result and the work. During the evening, with Nataša we participated in a volunteer promotion event at Štuk, a student bar near the Faculty of Arts in Maribor.

The following week, we met with a seniors' association to try to establish a partnership with them. It was a very friendly moment and we really enjoyed discovering the different activities it offers.There was also the first German lesson by my volunteer colleague Lucas, it is always very enriching and pleasant to see his colleagues' projects. I don't want to learn German but if I have some basic terms it would really be a success;) Another interesting event was the screening of the Rojava Film Festival. It was very moving to hear the festival director explain the situation. I invite you to inform yourself more and support the festival.
I did a lot of graphic work during the month for the different events proposed by Pekarna, notably the Filmopeka poster for Watchmen. The vegan meal was once again very good and we had a really enriching reading by a veterinary school.
At the end of the month, there was a greater focus on promoting the event for International AIDS Day. We collaborated with Radio Mars to have a promotional program for the December 5th event but also to talk about the subject. Jan from Radio Mars helped us develop the show. Simon from DrogArt answered an interview and I made a mixtape for the event.We also had a very enriching training with Tomaz and Natasa to build good workshops with the young people. This gave us many ideas to work more easily with young people. There was also Lucas' Travel Log on taxes in Germany. This has generated a lot of public interaction. And we ended the month with the broadcast of Watchmen;)

This month was also personally, very intense because I discovered many places and participated in many events. I have really forged a good friendship with several people here and I also enjoy discovering Maribor's day and night life. (Big thinking about the Nikola Party in Vetrinjski.)
