Lukas participated in the European Solidarity Corps project “Alma di Motta”. The project supports the Alma D’Arte civic school through artistic interventions of non-formal education. A creative open space in a rural area that aim to become a mirror of the local daily life by reflecting the needs of the community.
We asked Lukas a few questions about the experience:
What do you think of this experience as a volunteer of the European Solidarity Corps?
Well, I have to say that my expectations when I started the project weren’t very clear, and starting this ESC volunteering helped me to interrogate myself, and rethink my objectives. Furthermore I’m glad that the ESC gives you this opportunity regardless to your background or situation. I’m happy that I could take part to this program.
What do you take home?
For sure new knowledges and skills, about the Italian culture, the work in an artistic and social cooperative, and the life in rural areas. Also beeing close to people writing and managing european projects, helped me defining better the following of my formation. I also met lot of people and creat new contacts around Europe.
Besides this experience reinforce deeply my love for good food.
Would you recommend this experience to other young Europeans? Why?
I totally recommend this experience or any intercultural exchanges of any kind, specially to those who feels unsure about the way to take for the future. This experience provides you time to reflect on your objectives and/or can help you create new ones in an yet unknown framework. Even though it doesn’t happen that way, you’ll still doing a great experience and meet nice people.
