Greetings from Spain to Moon base and The Black Box
I can’t believe that I left Belfast two months ago. Time flies, still strange times for all of us but I am glad to continue being part of the project and seeing everyone on the sessions from here!
This month we had different and great sessions with all the team through Zoom. Although sometimes we feel that it is not the same as being in the same room, now we are more comfortable and we are all getting used to it which leads to have a really nice connection. On the Women’s Carers Project, we had Songwriting, some improvisations, dance and movement, performance and an amazing final fashion show. This project has helped me to be more outgoing, to meet all the group and share different experiences, thoughts and feelings in a creative and close atmosphere.
At Creating Connections, we had such original sessions and these include: dressing up as famous paintings where we all performed, talked to each other and sang some songs. A quiz and games of charades where we all enjoyed, laughed and had a good time. Mad Hatter Tea party where we wore a hat and told some jokes, read poems and sang. These sessions are a way of keeping learning from each other, having fun, and exploring our creativeness.
Our Moon Music has become international with all of us joining from different places in the world including Northern Ireland, New Jersey, New York, Spain. This month we had the visit of some artists and we did singing, poetry, musical games and came up with different rhythms and tunes. I also had the opportunity to participate on a video with The Coffee House Project from New Jersey, Trapped Inside My House, a takeoff on 1977’s French song “Ça plane pour moi” by Plastic Bertrand. It’s nice to meet new people in such a great and welcoming atmosphere where music connects all of us.

To sum up, I can say that participating in the activities and sessions through Zoom enables me to forget the reality that we are all living, be ‘virtually’ together, share our thoughts and enjoy our time as a great team!
