Erasmus Dance

Our beloved Erasmus,

Spring is almost here, and we are feeling more and more energetic. That is why we can dance for ESN International - Annual General Meeting, which is going to be held in Granada, this March.

All we have to do is follow this choreography: and do the same in a representative location in Timisoara, record it and have fun! The clip is going to be added to a presentation of the all ESN sections.

When? - Tuesday, February 28th 2012, 4pm

Where? - at the Timisoara Bastion (see location in the picture below)

Who? - You Erasmus, of course :) and the ESN volunteers

Why? - Because we can, it is fun and we are pround of our Erasmus community in Timisoara

What to wear? - the ESN colours: something blue, pink, green or orange, your choice

Let's dance, feel the beat and the rhythm!

Social Erasmus :Selling the March trinkets

Let's handcraft together for the children!

Dear Erasmus,

We are organising a charity event meant to help children suffering from cancer from the Childeren's Hospital in Timisoara.

The 1st of March is the Mărţişor day in Romania - one of the most beloved Romanian traditions as it marks the beginning of spring in our country. The “mărţişor” or march trinket, is nothing but a small piece of plastic, pottery, dried flowers or leaves, coloured paper or gemstones representing flowers, animals, plants, good luck charms or abstract art. It is a symbol of the good will and the joy that fills our hearts after a long dark winter. You can read more about this here:

We will manufacture the "martisoare" ourselves, and we will then sell them in the university next week to raise money for the children.

We will meet on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 4 PM to 8 PM in the reading room in Caminul 13 to produce the martisoare. You are encouraged to bring anything - materials and ideas - you would like to use for the production of the martisoare.

With the money raised we will make a library at the Oncology section of the Children's Hospital. The books will be books from your own countries, we will open a list of suggestions for this later next month.

In this way you will feel that you have made a contribution to Timisoara, to the society and to those children.

We know you all have a sensitive part, so let's do this together!
