Workshop – Journaling for mental healthNovember 5, 2021
Art Attack by Dutch volunteersNovember 8, 2021
Thursday the third Deep Talk took place in the УЛАФ СТЕ cafe. This is a biweekly event hosted by two 18-year-old Dutch volunteers and it provides participants with an opportunity to open-endedly join in on a conversation about a deeper topic, to gain insights, and to practice speaking English. Last time we discussed the topic of Life Goals. This week we were happy to see some familiar faces of people who joined us two weeks ago, and some new participants. There were even some participants who came all the way from Prilep. It is nice that people from outside Bitola also are interested in our event. This time the topic was: The Art of Conversation. After everybody was gathered we were able to start. The way we organise the Deep talks is that before the event we fill a jar with questions, written on small pieces of paper. Then we can pass the jar around so everyone takes out a question, reads it out loud, and then tries to give an answer. Anyone who has something to add or ask may always jump in. This way we shape the talk and allow everyone to have input in the discussion. For the topic: The Art of Conversation we had questions such as: “What was the best conversation you ever had?”, “Do you like to eavesdrop on other people’s conversations?”, “Does it help you to talk about your problems?” and many more. After about an hour of talking, we went through all the questions. Most of the people stayed longer, so we chatted a little more. Having gained some new ideas and views we look back on a great event, thanks to all the participants!
