"I was lucky to visit the event by Human Constanta and New Regions – the exhibition and "I "I was lucky to visit the event by Human Constanta and New Regions – the exhibition and discussion "open your eyes" (the name which unobtrusively calls up with beautiful musical compositions of top groups Guano Apes and Hot Chip)
In this case "lucky" isn't just a word, but a constance of the fact. That day I've dedicated to help my friend move out from her house where she was psychologically pressured, and move to home town. Time to the train allowed to show her some positive side of Mogilev, and I'm glad that she managed to visit this exhibition and discussion of the discrimination.
The most bright thing in memory is how good Valdis was leading and moderating that part of the event, which was dedicated to discussion of discrimination problems in open circle.
Interactive game that at first seemed just a reason for a little movement, opened up with unexpected deep subtext and helped really personally, almost with your skin to feel, how for the simplest and seemingly unharmful things people in the past were persecuted.
Discrimination is irrational and to become the victim or the source of non-based violence such easier as it seems. Especially when we're not used to think about it.
For example, we just started answering question "Who is not liked in society?" and didn't notice how we reached deep pains and fears of non being accepted because of appearance and to seemingly forgotten and buried personal vendetta's with elder women in queues.
Behind of all of this unstoppable movement I've barely managed to look at the exhibition when I needed to run to the train, sending my friend away from her personal discrimination. Moments before the departure she shared that Mogilev in the end managed to seem before her as a really interesting and memorable side.
I'm sure, organizers and visitors made useful conclusions in the end. About myself I honestly could say: I've memorized that day by good and bad things. And Open your eyes is totally on the good side. And I sincerely want that people learn about power and cruelty of discrimination by such educational events, and not by their own experience."
