Letters to the World Trondheim


After our successful workshop and art installation in Kristiansand last summer, WCU arranged the last “Letters to the World” workshop and exhibition of 2017 at the public library in Trondheim (Folkebiblioteket). The two days workshop  event took place at the public workshop (Folkeverkstedet) and a little exhibition will remain until Christmass holidays break.

We shared WCU experiences with participants of all ages who came from different countries (Croatia, Rumania, Turkey, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Bolivia, Norway, Siria, Palestina) in the beautiful space for creative learning leaded by Zeljko Vuvic from Croatia. We are very happy and thankful for having received his support and assistance during the workshops and preparations. Thanks to all participants for taking part in this nomadic project, which will be traveling abroad in 2018 again. Sicily and Russia are in our “upcoming events” list.

We have already collected more than 250 messages in more than 10 different languages and we look forward to continuing traveling around the world with this project, sharing experiences and exchanging messages and inspiring thoughts together. 🙂

This event was supported by Trondheim municipality and the Public library in Trondheim. We thank and credit Letizia Jaccheri, Alberto Comrado and Zeljko Vuvic for helping us with photo documentation.

Creative Arkhangelsk and Artic Art Forum


Creativity, ideas, inspiration, co-creation. These are some of the keywords from our short trip to Arkhangelsk region in November 2017. We started our journey in Novodvinsk, where we visited the workshop of the artist Nikolai Dmtruk, whom shared with us his creations, workshop pieces and artifacts collection. Recycled materials are his best trademark.

We explored the secret magic of the White Sea leaded by Ilia Kuzubov from Taibola Assemble and Valeria. It was fascinating to witness this landscape shaped by ice, snow, sand and trees, which create beautiful patterns and forms, transforming the beach into a while world.

Our last two days WCU participated at Artic Art Forum, where Anastasia Malafey presented Evolve Arena and our new project partners from Taibola Assemble shared their amazing “Land art=Land mark” project in Northern Norway and Northern Russia.

Our workshop took place the second day of the forum, after a previous visit to Maley Korely Open-air museum. It was truly inspiring to share our pilot journey in Peru with the participants previous to our active discussion panel, mapping and brainstorm session. We ended up with a lot of material that the young creative minds of Arkhangelsk will use in order to establish a co-working and co-creating spaces for future creative industries. We look forward to creating projects together.

Workshop results were presented as an action proposal to “Initiate”, an upcoming project launched by Letizia Jaccheri and Ilias O. Pappas, from the IT department at NTNU in Trondheim. This project is designed for the first semester of 2018 with Experts in Team student program at NTNU under the name “Sustainable Goals” and is supported by the European commission for Horizon 2020.

We dedicate this page to all forum participants and new project partners!
