The best part in all my projects is getting to know a community and their culture(s). The people here in Ongojou on the island of Maoré have been very supportive of the project! I’m always very thankful for the amount of stuff I’m taught and the trust that people give me from the start. I’m brought to believe people trust artists more than polititians, tourists or NGOs. Staying in a same place for several weeks gives me a real feeling of how people live, love, laugh, play, wash, eat, pray, party, and grieve. And it also gives my pupils time to sharpen their skills!
