            Seven Years in Laos - A Teachers Learning Journey

            BY JULIA MITCHELL
            @ VOL 7 ON SEP 14, 2017

            The often quoted maxim, “I went out as a teacher and came back a student” so aptly pertains to Julia Mitchell ‘s life in Laos, the country she has made her home. Embracing the culture and language, and forming lasting bonds with friends, transformed her stay from one year to seven. Julia’s vibrant story is infused with humour and pathos as she tells why this country has won her heart.

            All the World′s a Stage

            BY RACHAEL PHIASANAXAY
            @ VOL 7 ON SEP 14, 2017

            In this context Rachael Phiasananaxy is very much at home. A belief in the power of theatre, to change lives and build communities, has been central to her life-long involvement in this diffuse and multifaceted art. Her story resonates with the beliefs and diversity at the heart of her theatre experiences.

            Let your Heart be Water

            BY SANDRA BODE
            @ VOL 7 ON SEP 14, 2017

            Sandra invites the audience, at the conclusion of her presentation, to focus on her eyes and remain so. There is a palpable silence in the room. We remain fixed.  This demonstration of  how to connect deeply with another resonates with the belief that Sandra holds, “magic happens simply through holding space for each other and allowing ourselves to connect deeply”. NamChai Community Center Vientiane, founded by Sandra, is such a space.

            Vientianale on the Road

            BY HELENE OUVRARD
            @ VOL 7 ON SEP 14, 2017

            When the Vientianale film-festival turns off the lights for another year, so begins 'Vientianale on the Road'. Helene Ouvard takes us on the road less travelled through Lao provinces from Bokeo to Champassak. Stopping at villages and schools, where make-shift screens are set up, or in reclaimed halls, we witness the sheer excitement of those taking part in a film workshop, or enjoying the best of recent Lao films.

            My Place in Vientiane

            BY KATHRYN SWEET
            @ VOL 7 ON SEP 14, 2017

            Kathryn Sweet, a long-term resident of Vientiane, considers her relationships with people, places, and memories as she locates her place in this community. Those who inhabit her everyday life (including cats), those remembered and encountered, provide a sense of belonging.

            The pleasures of road running in Pyongyang

            BY VERA SCHOLZ
            @ VOL 7 ON SEP 14, 2017

            Vera Scholz’s evocation of the 'pleasures’ associated with running in North Korea don’t exactly fit the stereotypical lens through which we are encouraged to view this somewhat secretive country. As this story unravels we learn the running event is secondary to Vera’s “self-delusional quest to look behind the scenes”, as she so succinctly expresses it. This captivating narrative is embedded in every image.

            Matryoshka's Secret

            BY CRISTINA SZEMERE ENDERLIN
            IN VIENTIANE

            Cristina Szemere Enderlin weaves us a story that takes us into the world of a young woman coming through adolescence. This talk is a true feast for the senses with each hand-painted slide illuminating the beautiful story of this young woman. Listen as she moves from spaces inside her mind, to the world around her, through memories and into forests of fear and fantasy.

            Global Peace

            BY MICHAEL BODDINGTON
            IN VIENTIANE

            Michael Boddington shared with us his vision for a peaceful future. He explained his standpoint through his many experiences, specifically through his work to eradicate the remnants of war that are the unexploded ordinances that continue to cause devastation throughout south-east asia and especially Laos. It was inspiring to hear his solutions to the problem of war and poignant in that he asked us to 'start with ourselves'.
