The Venetian gondola was the primary form of transportation in Venice from the 12th century until speedboats roared into the canals in the late 20th.

The island of Burano in the lagoon of Venice

bona giornataThis is just a small glimpse of how much Venice has to offer. Having spent 3 days in the Venetian lagoon, I didn’t have enough time to see everything in the area. I highly recommend it as a weekend get-away, nonetheless if you want to travel around the somewhat lesser known islands of Murano, Burano, Lido or Torcello, you need to spend at least 4 to 5 days in the region.

Great food, the central island of Venice is well-organised, while the timing couldn’t have been better – mid March, just before the tourist season kicks in and one week before the Easter break.

About the Teatre Club

The Romanian amateur  theatre club in Luxembourg ‘L’Avant-scène’ was set up in March 2009 and is affiliated to the Cultural association of the European institutions in Luxembourg (Cercle culturel des institutions européennes). The club consists of Romanian officials working in several European institutions (mainly in the European Commission and the European Parliament).

About the play

Also known as ‘The Cantankerous Men’ (Venetian: I rusteghi), is a comedy by Carlo Goldoni. It was first performed at the San Luca theatre of Venice towards the end of the Carnival in 1760. It was published in 1762. The ‘Boors’ are four merchants of Venice, who represent the old, conservative, puritanical tradition of the Venetian middle classes, who are pitted against Venice’s “new frivolity”.

About Carlo Goldoni

Born to a prosperous middle-class family in Venice, Carlo Goldoni displayed a theatrical inclination from early childhood. Soon after the turn of his eighth birthday he was playing intently with toy puppet-theatres and composing his first theatrical plot.

Goldoni’s theatre output includes five tragedies, sixteen tragicomedies, one hundred and thirty-seven comedies, to which must be added, in the service of music, two sacred pieces, twenty entr’acte, thirteen dramas, forty-nine drammi giocosi, three farces and fifty-seven scenarios.

Why Employ Disabled People? Attend the seminar & celebrate Diversity Day in Luxembourg

diversity-day-12-may-luxembourg

“Employing a disabled person is not an act of charity, it is potentially a wise business decision” (Evenbreak 2014).

Besides the many moral, ethical and legal reasons why organisations should consider employing disabled people, the business case for it has largely been neglected. A persisting myth among employers is that employing disabled people is an expensive risk. Is it so?

To celebrate Diversity Day Luxembourg, Time For Equality  invites you to look into the business benefits of employing disabled people and to challenge some of the current perceptions and stereotypes about disability

Why Employ Disabled People?

Tuesday, 12 May 2015, 12 noon – 2 p.m.

During the workshop Jane Hatton, Evenbreak’s Founder and Director, will be sharing with us – via a live webinar – her unique perspective coming from her personal experience, both as a HR expert and entrepreneur, and as a disabled person herself.

  • To identify the business case for employing disabled people
  • To explore the implications of inclusive practice
  • To be confident around disabled people.

Lenacay concert @ Migrations Festival Luxembourg 2015

Barcelona Band Lenacay

I discovered this band, Lenacay, from Barcelona, at this year’s Migrations Festival @ Luxexpo in Luxembourg, on Saturday night when they played a nice fusion of flamenco, rock and rumba music.

I am a big fan of flamenco and latin music, therefore, their music appealed to me instantly, but irrespective of one’s music tastes, the lead singer Paola Domniguez has an amazing voice, mastering flamenco as perfectly as hard rock or alternative beats. Moreover, the band’s other female member, Carolina Morgado, dances flamenco during their shows, which really brings value to their overall performance.

LENACAY is an experimental music project that fuses flamenco and different languages ​​of musical expression. It´s an innovative journey through time that runs from flamenco roots and culture, to electronic beats, rumba melodies and rythm patterns, funky basslines and electric guitars.

If you haven’t heard of this band before, make sure you check their official website and Youtube account.
