About the project FEM21

The project FEM21-Women’s Voices and Ways of Perceiving Them in Europe via Culture, Traditions, Diversity and Friendship also aims at reinforcing the Europe women’s sense of citizenship by involving them in life-long learning activities. They ar meant to find world cultural values as a common source for what is considered national wisdom. So, culture, traditions and friendship represent ways of perceiving the women’s voices in Europe.

Through this partnership that will take place in Romania, France and UK, we want to encourage the participation of a large number of women and men in this action, to highlight gender equality and equal opportunities in culture, in social and political life for all.

We would like to invite you to contribute to the image-building of women in an artistic dialogue in the European countries, with multicultural profiles and inspiration. We welcome you to the development of partnership by taking an interactive part in roundtables, récittals of poetry, music events, theatre and art exhibitions during the project.

The project aims at developing appropriate strategies and activities which enables each partner organisation to share its historical, cultural and traditional knowledge. By its specific language, culture and tradition, each country contributes to the unity of Europe. While working at this project the participants of both sexes collect folklore and ethnographic information from their area and share knowledge with all participants in the project.

Radio Tv Unirea -un radio pentru toti românii-inaugurat la Festivalul Callatis 2011, Roma

De ce Radio Tv Unirea?
http://www.radiotvunirea.com/


Am simţit şi filtrat prin propria respiraţie aerul tare al străinătaţii călătorind şi trăind în diferite colţuri ale lumii.

Mulţi dintre noi au avut nevoie să se refere strict cu “acasa ” atunci când era vorba de România sau de valenţele ei spirituale, patrimoniale sau afective pe care le reprezintă.
Cu timpul am adăugat acestui sens de “acasa”elementele locului in care fiecare işi trăieşte miracolul redescoperirii şi unde revenim din fiecare călătorie cu plăcerea unui ‘’acasa’’ adoptiv.

Vine apoi un timp când descoperim că putem călători în lume purtând România în suflet , înnobilată de sensul unirii în suflet şi simţiri a 10-15 milioane de români indiferent de meridianul pe care ne aflăm.
Pentru ca sunt multe lucruri care ne unesc la bucurii sau la tristeţi, pe noi toţi acesti români risipiti in lume, noi luam lucrurile aşa cum sunt rămânând verticali si răzbind să facem rădăcini acolo unde ne-am stabilit.

În primul rând dorul acesta ancestral de acasă de locul acela în care totul se petrecea mai uşor, mai in siguranţa, în cauşul cald oferit de familie si prieteni. Apoi faptul că împărtăşim aceasta verticalitate a românului trăitor în credinţa strămoşească pe care o poartă cu el oriunde radiind încredere în sine şi în oameni indiferent de cât de deasa ar fii pădurea umană in care viata ne conduce.
Să nu uităm apoi această nesfârşită potenţialitate a creativităţii româneşti care ne ajută să ne raportăm la existenţă intr-un adevărat spirit entuziast şi original adaptându-ne cu generozitate mediului care ne oferă siguranţa traiului de zi cu zi.
Şi dincolo de toate acestea ne uneşte o imensă responsabilitate faţa de noi inşine si faţă de ceea ce lăsăm in urmă. Căci suntem 10-15 milioane
de români in diaspora chiar dacă cifrele diferă în functie de sursa statisticilor, noi reuşim să rămânem uniţi, puternici şi vizibili chiar dacă nu avem un guvern, o armată sau o reprezentare consistentă în structurile statale româneşti, care să ne gestioneze reuşitele sau mai nereuşitele unor vieţi trecătoare dar perene.
Caci ceea ce avem este responsabilitatea solidarităţii noastre pentru ca spiritul românesc sa dăinuie în lume cu demnitate , cu respect si perenitate.
Pentru că acestă conştiinţă de sine există cu forţa identităţii naţionale individuale oglindite într-o lume din ce in ce mai mult multiculturală, pentru că existăm in aceste condiţii in lume , pentru aceasta Radio Tv Unirea există şi vă aşteaptă alături la acest început de drum.
Radio Tv Unirea e o stare de spirit şi un mod de viaţa, asumat de 3 organizaţii coordonatoare ale acestui proiect de suflet românesc: "Cercul Cultural Româno-Austriac UNIREA" Austria, Societatea Românca Marea Britanie si Fundaţia Asturian, România.

Concerts, composers' talk, book launch and film: 29 June at 7.30pm & 6 July at 7.00pm

Be not afeard: the isle is full of noises,
Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight,
and hurt not.
The Tempest, Shakespeare.

The London Schubert Players welcome you to the mysterious sounds of their next journeys:
- the magical musical world of Ravel and Faure
- the film-like music of the Jewish-Ethiopian story which brought many international awards to Radu Mihaileanu's film Va, vis et deviens
- a meditation by a Serbo-Croat composer on Japanese poet Basho
- the colourful and delightful rhythms of Venezuelan and Romanian dances
- the poetical paths of Heine, Baudelaire and Tennyson put to music by composers Silvestri, Cashian and Nickol.



The two events are part of Invitation to Composers international project, which has enriched Europe’s cultural heritage in 2010 and 2011 with 40 valuable works inspired by music, literature, visual arts, history and nature. It is building bridges between great traditions of music of the past and contemporary thought, without the use of electronics and non-musical experiments. It was one of 87 projects selected by the European Commission out of 298 for its recent cultural programmes. It has caught the interest, imagination and admiration of over 100 professional composers and 80 performers worldwide, the composition department of London’s Royal Academy of Music, record distributors, festival directors and music lovers.

The book to be launched contains the Bournemouth Symphony players' impressions about the legendary Romanian conductor Constantin Silvestri; and the unique film, shown publicly in Britain for the first time on July 6th, a tremendous performance of Silvestri conducting the French National Radio Orchestra in Liszt's poem Tasso and Silvestri's own work Prelude and Fugue (Toccata).



We want to share these journeys, entrance is free and a glass of wine will be waiting for you!

See you soon,
Yours in Music,
Anda and the London Schubert Players
