Informal performance and chat

Barking dogs, vans and motorbikes passing by, and even more noises were unable to spoil the mesmerizing sound of Pujasree’s voice.
An amazing ability to improvise.
The best place to play for spontaneity is in a cafe, not on stage.

New Talents to Auroville

Tristan, volunteering in Aquadyn as a software programmer who follows his passion of playing music by night.
He has an intense form of musical expression. Accompanied by his guitar he goes into improvised musical tangents reminiscent of the doo-op period. He very likely has the secret ability to scat.

Gino, with the ability to turn just about any object into an instrument of percussion plays along adding a necessary element of oomph.

Proposal to restructure TDC

Therre was a general meeting held on Monday April 24 in Unity Pavilion which was a continuation of last months general meeting where the core group came up with fulfilling the task of restructuring Town Planning & Development Council (TDC)/L’Avenir d’Auroville. Last year, the Auroville council was asked to facilitate a process to restructure the TDC, the core group working on this comprised of Martin, Jesse, Sauro, Pashi, Shama, Suhasini, Mamta, Elvira, Lionel and Christiane. This meeting was a preparation for a Resident Assembly Decision-making Event (RAD) May 13 – June 10. The team proposed a revised structure of TDC and asked for the opinions of people present in the meeting on the same. A lot of healthy debate and constructive insights were offered by the members of the community attending the presentation. The feedbacks and comments for last month’s meeting were also shared. Involvement of youths was an important point in the discussion. Meeting ended up on a positive note.

Chloe's performance at LFA

Chloe performed an interesting piece of music out of old tapes and systems. Her performance was intriguing as she created music through waste. The performance was a potpourri of jazz music, conversations and other genres of music.

Namaspamus Brass Band

Eight young musicians from Marseilles, France, with their brass instruments played a variety of pop dance songs, and created a refreshing festive atmosphere.
Although the concert took place on a Monday evening, the youth and volunteers found the charming vibes irresistible and took to the dance floor.
The musicians were interacting with the audience with a light sense of humour. It was a surprise to find such a joyful concert at the Youth Centre.

Exploring Democratic Classrooms

Heidi Watts and Chris Sperry explored the concept of democratic classrooms over decades in different types of schools in the United States. Democratic schools encourage students to make their own decisions as a student community. This practice cultivates student ownership and student responsibility. In Auroville’s Teacher Center both, teachers and parents discussed the chances and challenges as well as opportunities and limits to student decisions. The final conclusion: Let’s meet again on that topic!
