Within the framework of Creative Experiences we have a group called the Ascala project and the purpose with that is to develop Gamla Byskolan to meet the needs of the future. It is a really interesting group, because everyone is a person within their own right. We have been working together for a number of years and it has been an interesting journey. Every time we meet it seems as if we take a step further to meet our aim and purpose.
It is very good for me to be part of a group where every single person have their own way of thinking, believing and creating. Being part of this project I feel that do not have to be the focus point when we have our events. I am part of a dynamic. The people in this group offer different perspectives. It is inspiring and gives me a lot of food for thought. I find that my mind is much more open and ready to receive new points of view. What I like about these people is that they have their unique experience of working with people or spirit etcetera. Working with them has shown me what can be achieved in a responsible collective. I do not have to be everything and I can let go of control.
The closer we have become we dare leaving the masks more and more. When we met up a few days ago there was a lot of humour and teasing, it was great fun. Meeting their personalities are endearing. I am very fond of them all. They are strong people with visions and dreams. We have a lot of fun together. This time we did something we have never done before. Some came up with good ideas about how to use nature as a resource. We went on a walk together, it turned in to a two hour walk. We walked through the forest. There was no great need to talk. The companionship and the silence was pleasant. This was a clear indication to me that we have become an open minded development group with something to offer one another and others. Keep your eyes and ears open, because you will be hearing more from us!
