How to be a French lover?

Here's a new year beginning. After a few days in France, I enjoyed coming back to my room in Maribor. We went back to work quietly. We discovered the new exhibition at Gallery K18. Thursday, we had the German course by Lucas. We started to think about a program around the Library Rosa Luxemburg for the coming months. We are going to have a program about feminism and activism.
The following week I had my first French class at INFOPEKA. It was very interesting to teach. I took a lot of time to work out a plan to teach the basics of French. The difficulty was that I didn't know the level of the people and I wanted to develop something lively. The participants seemed to enjoy this moment with me. I continue the French class that I entitled: How to be a French loveR? every two weeks. We also took our Slovenian test with Lucas and I am pleased to announce that we both have the A2 level of Slovenian. At the end of the week, we had a meeting with our coordinator to plan the actions until the end of the volunteering.

The third week of January, we watched Foxtrot during RUBRIKA: FILMOPELA, it was an interesting moment that ended with a philosophical debriefing about anti-militarism and utopia. I also started to work on the subject of my exhibition and write a text and a plan for the scenography. On Thursday, we went to the Second Gymnasium of Maribor to meet the coordinator of the international class of the establishment. We discussed the possibility of creating an awareness workshop on LGBTQI+ issues in February. Friday ended with the screening of the film MicMac: à tire l'arigot by Jean Pierre Jeunet and it was an excellent moment. The film was very critical and interesting.
The last week was our mid-term training with Lucas. The training took place in Velenje. It was very interesting to discover this city, a mining city where Tito had a great influence and importance. The training was very enriching. First of all, it was very pleasant to see the other ESE and to take stock of our situation. The proposed workshops were great. We visited the mine and it was a beautiful metaphor of the ESE experience.
See you in March for the February blog ;)
