VIENNA SOCIAL TOUR. 11-15 JULY 2016.

As the Vienna Social Tour ‘El Valor de ser diferente // The Value of being different // Der Wert anders zu sein” has come to a close, we wanted to share some impressions with you, make a first statement, and express our immense gratitude.

The word “value” (‘valor’) in Spanish has several meanings, which we hope to have transmitted: firstly, it could mean “courage” or it could also mean ”value”. No doubt that both characteristics are essential for personal development and to build the society we want. We believe in each and every one of you, and that another world is possible.

This week has been amply demonstrated. We claim the value of being different. Our differences are an added value to the whole process lived in this past week, and we celebrate them.

The Vienna Social Tour was a first step towards the spring 2017, for a community cultural development and social inclusion encounter in Vienna. In it, we have found ourselves and known ourselves in a different way, we have woven networks, planted ideas, harvest fruits, shared meals, dances, images, dreams… All this will be summarized in a document that you will receive in late summer (first we need to digest it to put it into words).

How to give thanks in a different way, to express how much we value meeting you during these last few days  … All the light, immensity, colour, beauty, care, etc. resides within this image.
