Stella (Photographer: Stella)Since studying media choice for Auroville Radio was a logical option for Stella who wanted to spend and volunteer some more time in Auroville. She finds AV radio different mostly because is not searching exclusively for bad news, which would be the practice everywhere else, but still wishes that it would be more focused of Auroville values, reflect a state of the town with it's truth. Whole team admire Stella for her honesty, sense for a team work, and for her excellent photographic portraits she have taken over her volunteership.

Rustam and Olga (Photographer: Stella)Ukrainian musicians Olga and Rustam are traveling through India for the last four months. On the advice of somebody, they decided to pay a visit to Auroville as well.

But they insisted in their search for the musicians living and working here, and as the result of their quest, there will be a concert on Tuesday, 20th of March at Sadhana Forest at 7.30pm, and on Wednesday 21st at Unity Pavilion at 7.30pm.

Marek (Photographer: Monireh)Volunteers to AurovilleRadio come from different parts of the world, different backgrounds, professions or line of studies, but up until now nobody had ever come from Europe on a cycle! Marek did, all the way from his home town Liepzig in Germany. Over 11 000 kilometres, many countries he has now got behind him, and as he confides, he started to travel to see the world, and traveling such a long way on cycle seems much nicer to him. It gives him the opportunity to see more at a slower pace and always presents a possibility of unplanned stops. Read more

The Matrimandir exhibition space (Photographer: Rebecca)On February 28th, 2011, the work began for a new Matrimandir exhibit at the Visitor's Center.

The creation was a smooth and quiet process, and was realized just in time for the one year deadline. Read more

by Andi   
Friday, 04 February 2011
Working with children (Photographer: Living Routes website)In a short interview with some Living Routes students and volunteers from USA, Andi found out a few things. They were all exposed to some new ideas, met many different people from all over the world, tried new techniques on themselves - like awareness through the body or meditation.
