During the centennial year, we are part of the project, “United Villages of Romania”, and from July 20th to 22nd, we are proposing an event even bigger than last year’s, consisting of practical workshops hosted by local artisans or artisans from other parts of the country, photographic exhibitions, painting, traditional costumes, open-air screenings of Romanian films, Romanian hemp, “oaie la groapa” (lamb meat filled with vegetables and rice), dance and archaic music showcases, and last but not least, the reenactment of the life story of a countryman. We hope to bring folk artists and artisans from other villages to Marin because together we can take our traditions even further.The purpose is both cultural – we want to promote authentic Romanian culture – and socioeconomic – we hope to attract more youth to learn everything about what those in the countryside can barely wait to share with them. Through this, we hope to revitalize and create a future for this way of life in Romania. Right now, I’m the leader of a group of approximately fifty members, together with whom I create reports and other types of videos.
We also organized other cultural events based on historical reenactments such as the reenactments of a traditional Romanian wedding from 1941, a marriage tale from 1962, and a corn harvest husking tradition. All these activities are part of the main project named "Fiii Marinului" (Sons of Marin)
Me, Patricia Marina Toma, I am the organizer of the event, supported by "Fiii Marinului" community, kinds, teenagers, parents and grand-parents, with whom I worked in the last 3 years.
We hope the everything will be alright. :)
One fine body…
