Motto: Sayings like „who hasn`t elders should buy some” are now lost trough the online search engines ranks. So, here we are, forgetting to dialogue because of our desire to keep up with the future and denying our past and our present. However, we are defined by the past that we forget because we all are the accumulation of our experiences and of our predecessors.

Motto:I’ve taken form Romania many values. I arrived in Norway, in a different culture and I tried to learn the best of it. I wanted to return one day all my gratitude to the country where I grew up and which gave me those unique values that I have not found anywhere else. For me is a privilege that I can pick the best things of the two different cultures. I’m glad that through these projects I have the opportunity to bring elements of the Romanian culture in Norway and elements of the Norwegian culture in Romania.
