DOMESTIC BLISS - FIRST WORKSHOP AT GOMA
As I used to always do when I started a new topic or a new book, I brainstormed the title of this workshop. I had a memory of a song called Domestic Bliss by Glass Animals. This song narrates a tragic instance of an abusive relationship a mother of one of Dave Bayley’s childhood friends was in. Unfortunately, domestic violence still exists in our societies. Many mass media talk about it. In my opinion, nevertheless, to be totally fair we should talk not just of the violence from a man to a woman but also in the opposite direction. Many times, indeed, I see women be cruel with the fathers of their children. I think we should teach our daughters to have a balanced relationship. A woman should in marrying a man and having a good home with his money. A happy woman needs to keep in her mind her dreams from childhood and search for a way to realize them, with or without a man by her side.
The 4th workshop of the project Thistles and Dandelions about Heritage started by asking all of us our dream job when we were children. Among us there were many teachers and artists, a writer, a painter, a pair of interior designers. It was really interesting to know about other people’s study choices and how [lives bring everyone of us around the world] every one of us around the world live following a dream.
The workshop continued with a quiz: we should guess the names of the following buildings. Do you know them?
