Two days left until FanFest starts

FanFest announces dozens of events at Rosia Montana between 15th and 18th of August.
The second edition of the Activist Social Forum at FanFest will gather in Rosia Montana activists, students, peasants, and grassroots NGO’s and members of informal movements and groups from all over the world, reads a press release remitted to Nine O’Clock. Some NGOs are questioning and exposing the current governing systems. Some are even initiating alternative systems that are focused on the citizen’s and environment’s real needs. Their experiences are uncountable and truly valuable for a collective action in support of environment and social justice. The topics of this edition of the Forum are: alternative development, grassroots groups, campaigns and social movements, cultural heritage.
As in every edition, at this year’s FanFest prepared a selection of documentaries which highlight important and urgent social issues in our contemporary world.
As we know how well books suit in open air and because FanFest is meant to fight for nature through culture, this year the organizers planned, the same as in the previous editions, to focus on the contemporary Romanian literature. It is the well-composed, wise, ironic or brilliant literature, written in books, on blogs or walls. You will meet here (or meet again) writers sharing their productions with the world, a world they want better, healthier in its mind, purer and more dreaming. For three days in Rosia Montana you will read, listen to, write and play with letters, together with Orlando Balas, Mihai Gotiu, Gabriel Bota, Petra Balu, Oana Maria Zaharia and Stefan, Marcel Visa, and at the end of the festival you will set all these words in a Rosia Montana story.
As we all know that a picture is worth a thousand words, the organizers show with every edition of FanFest Rosia Montana in expressive images. The exhibitions of this year are trying to capture breathtaking landscape of the Apuseni Mountains, priceless monuments from the village and the work of those involved in the effort to keep everything as it is. No less than five different exhibitions will be held in various locations around Rosa Montana.
During the festival, participants can also attend a series of demonstrative workshops that be held as part of the Adopt a house Programme. These workshops will benefit from the participation of local craftsmen and will focus on the revitalization of traditional crafts like making shingles, masonry mortar of lime, dry masonry (mauri), and plaster with lime mortar.
