Participating in Road to the Change has been one of the best experiences of my life because it has helped me to develop professionally, as I have learned a lot about Erasmus+ projects, but above all, what I keep is the personal development I have achieved.
One of the aims of the project was to show the problems we have as young people in the world through art, and I believe that we have not only been able to express ourselves openly, but we have also managed to impact on the mentality of our colleagues thanks to our personal experiences.
For example, one of the activities we did was to choose a problem from all those that had been proposed in a workshop and make an artistic video about it. Thanks to this, in addition to having a great time taking photos and recording the videos we needed, we learned how to use digital tools to get into the world of storytelling, which is currently in great demand and, from my point of view, is very interesting. Our topic was “How social media has changed our lives” and you can see down below a picture of some of us taking a selfie while other friends were recording us!
On the other hand, we also had the opportunity to learn more about the culture of all the countries involved through the dance and singing workshops we did. For me, music is very important, and every time I remember us all learning the traditional Armenian or Polish steps I can’t help but smile. I think I’m going to have to go back, because my memory is already failing a bit! 😛
Finally, how can we forget the wonderful locations we visited during the project, starting with the capital of Armenia with its beautiful buildings and monuments, the Saghmosavank Monastery with its incredible historical past or the impressive monument of the Armenian alphabet near the village of Artashavan.
Road to the Change will certainly remain forever in my mind and I hope to have the opportunity to return to the oldest country in the world very soon.
