In the second part the students realize their ideas in a professional photography studio. Have a look at the short video of the […]

I met Mohan, a very charming and charismatic old Indian man with warm eyes. Accompanying me during my excursion through the colourful little fishing village, he opened me up to a deeper insight into a completely new world. […]
Writing about this country is not easy – I can say that I have lived some of my best experiences in life in Sri Lanka, amongst this unbelievable natural beauty, on this island full of contradictions, with a heavy history, and characterized by religious traditions and what feels at times a constant army presence. What captured my interest was the families and their constellations. The way families live together is so much different than everything we experience in Europe at […]

The classes aimed to strengthen the students’ life skills, encourage them to realize their own ideas and […]
