Some thoughts on our 3 moments of work while in Lithuania for Christmas.
When we decided to go spend Christmas in Lithuania we knew we would enjoy our experiences in that period. But we could never have guessed it would be so amazing times!
1 WORKSHOP AT THE PRIERAISIOSIOS TEVYSTES CENTRAS
The Center for Attachement Parenting is a place to reflect about closer parenting and they organize activities for families. They was interested in hosting a Didgeridoo Making Workshop for families. In that rainy day we had only one family and one music teacher so we all agreed in making a softer workshop, so I was sharing how to make didgeridoos from toilet paper rolls as well as some basics on didgeridoo playing. The kids (Markus and D.) was having fun around us. It was a soft and nice morning in a place worth to know!
2 PRESENTATION AT SIAULIU DIDZVARIO GIMNAZIJA
The very first institution that booked something with us this time. This school in Siauliai is an example of a different approach to education. There were 150 students in the room with high levels of interest and participation all through the presentation. In the end we had a meeting as we are planing something for the future, but about that we will speak again in some months…
3 TALK AT TEDxKIDS@VILNIUS
Rodrigo was sharing a talk about his bullying experience and how he went over it at TEDxKids@Vilnius. In this fantastic event we was all sharing ideas about the education of the future and it was extremely exciting and motivating. After the tragic disappearing of Tomas Dobrovolskis, The Walkabout Family offered to guarantee that the kids participating in the event wouldn’t loose the music workshop. The workshop happened in the end of the day and everyone was quite tired: kids, volunteers, Rodrigo, organization. In the performance the kids was just amazing!
It is always a pleasure to work with the didgeridoo in Lithuania! We look forward for next visit. Labai aciu!
UPDATE: The videos from TEDxKids@Vilnius are already available!
