April endurance

Every time, when introducing a new theme in creativity, it’s like a newborn day. Being a senior coach, going about preparing with scheduling, planning, and adjusting subjects for more than four decades, now it’s voluntarily time to mend, blend, and recover and to continue again. Offering my professional skills and knowledge in performing- and visual arts, giving these to youth groups, there is a time like this in April that needs a pause. It shapes every center corner before approximate to project-duties but hosting from my Foundation Funark, the ideas keep running.

The servicing thing that needs more attention, is the keen knowledge of the functioning and fulfillment of the fundraising aspects. Key is a responsibly shapen up nonprofit involving within the arts cultural community presenting yourself as a volunteering coach together with tools to give. Along giving support will lift up developing projects effortlessly for wellness that’s essentially improving when giving your part creative education to especially after schools and day-care.

Creative coach in Bandabou

In this great pause of April and aftermath pandemic from on the Easter period with weeks now in lockdown, qualifying on all authoritative procedures, the human hearth wishes soon to proceed traditionally-wise to the educative environment of their lives. Since sharing and embracing creatively ideas together take place alongside, and restored back inside this vulnerable community in the rural areas, we also attentively following all rules. Every step in the moment of responsibility counts, when we fully agree this pandemic lockdown is for a good cause. Let’s remember and look forward to smiling faces from kids in their customary function of education with safeguarding their faith. So in the backbone of their minds, they’re prepared to be back and engage within their groups again. A little more waiting – hopefully with these fewer weeks in April will mean something.

Calendar 2021 – Myrurgia Mutueel

January 2021, and we start promoting one of eye-catching Poetry Calendar from Myrurgia Mutueel.

Our Curaçao promising future creative writer has a long drive behind her already in her skills and turned now renovating herself again and transforming.

This introduction ‘Art/Writing Calendar 2021’ with poetry by Myrurgia Mutueel from Curaçao is written in Papiamento while she inspired by the paintings shown on the Calendar from Karin Hermans

This calendar was produced by Myrurgia, during the lockdown last year and challenged by online posted paintings from Karin Hermans and prose-like symbolic and metaphoric expressions became reality and expressed from the heart. Karin Hermans, besides a painter is also a youth and
child psychiatrist. By seeing these paintings, Myrurgia started writing
the emotions behind each of them. So it all happened during our lockdown last year.

Myrurgia’s readers are not accustomed to these writings
other than usual expressions about females, own thoughts and protests ones advocating change.
And instead, with this opportunity, she transformed herself with each thought and emotion behind another’s world and resulted in owns emotion to deal with.

. Descriptions are from the world around, for example the Iguana as an Icon,
Also about women, about home, as shown on the cover. Inspirations are in a symbolic and
metamorphosis, which in a profound way is writing to let words escape through the tunnel of her soul,

Topics are derived from Myrurgia’s own visions, impressed by the paintings and transformed these thoroughly about what the paintings were called for in Myrurgia’s inner soul. And this form got her changing her style.

‘Abundance’ for instance was a chance to fulfill inertly according to the all along racial news in US last year , also the ‘Chicken” in a double sentence had similarities within man’s world.
The challenge was, to be able to do research as well. The appearance of a ‘triangle understanding, the ‘dream house’, were unusual challenging subjects different from the realistic approving inside the paintings.
These became her soul’s dream of adventure.
‘The bubble’ or form elevated is discovered as an inner protected force. Her force inside

Funark activities and plan for virtual learning /expectations for 2021 will go with the flow because its necessary.

A start introduction went including an activity program for after school creative learning in Bandabou- held in a rural area in Curaçao, the main island in the Dutch Caribbean.

The unexpected surprise was, that there are kids and also the age of 9 and 10 already devouring the internet. Not whats-app, but stir the online machine searching for tools because their parents teach them.

The right conceptual way is to further light their ways to the videos creatively mastering skills and add to their education step by step original home-creative production as can.

This all comes with deserving to have good equipment and devices that connect between the coach and student. A good camera and computer or laptop, lighting equipment, beamers, etc. are truly the items to the outlook in discussions with the Donors world in harness to obtain creative education for areas where it’s absolutely necessary. The coach is voluntarily present for positive demonstrations if a must.
