Rock and Love in Visitor Center
As every year, Anna was back on stage with her concert 'Rock and Love for Your Soul' for all of us rock (and of course funk, soul, r&b) music lovers. And, as one guest exhaled, we went down the memory lane... From lady Gaga to Stones, from Adele to Michael Jackson... The music made us move and shake our bodies to the groove (though some got a bit too excited!). Anna was supported by Pierre (Guitar), Edo (Guitar), Saga (Bass) and Saravanan (Drums). It was a night to be together and share with Anna the passion for music and dance! Read more

Ceramics Exhibition in Pitanga
Priya Sundaravalli from Tamil Nadu is currently having an exhibition in Pitanga. Over 300 ceramic objects, which are all very unique, can be visited until the 24th of March. Her art is quite unusual and the thin shapes of her creations make the items look fragile. Instead of thinking and planning her work, she is trying to let her inspiration flow freely and allows herself to do whatever is coming up. If items crack she repairs them with a Japanese technique: 'Nothing is a defect, accidents are seen as part of what is supposed to happen.' Read more

In brief, the audience was delivered a history lesson about the concept of giving. Read more
