It’s Thursday morning, 09:30 a.m. and I find myself in a room with 25 people watching a video about Nixon. Sounds strange, ah?
Actually this is a story about learning, storytelling, adventures, wonderful people, diversity, creativity, smiles and emotions.
Everything started a week ago. We were a group of strangers, of unknown people who travelled hundreds and thousands of kilometers to be here. Morning by morning we started sharing about ourselves and learning about the others, about the art of storytelling, about media, organizations, etc. I learnt that Norwegians eat fish and potatoes and that Krakow has a district called Nowa Huta. I learnt what Stop Motion technique is and how to use it to transmit a powerful message. I remembered how exciting is to be in Romania again. I learnt how stressful fundraising could be and how a good idea could be lost because of a story gone bad. I learnt that Macedonia has 360 sunny days per year and that coffee and sleep are never enough.
I know it was only a week, but a week full of great stories and a week that will be an inspiration for greater stories.
