Last Sunday, we joined our volunteer Saskia in her town, Pomiechówek, to take part in an Easter Art Bazar. We were invited by the wonderful staff of the Biblioteka Publiczna Gminy Pomiechówek, where Saskia is currently doing her EVS.
The library was of course selling books but they also had a creative stand for children, as well as a makeup corner. Of course, we had to try it!
As for us, we were promoting volunteering, cultures and languages as usual, through a variety of activities: general knowledge quiz, language dice to learn Turkish, French, German, Dutch, Japanese or Chinese, “Easter traditions in other countries” mix and match and a “guess the language” challenge, with Easter chocolate eggs as a reward!
It was not always easy to attract players to our stand, as the fact that it was about foreign languages can be understandably daunting for some people. So we had to really be forwards, give flyers, call out, etc. We did manage to get people to play games with us and some were really interested in the volunteering possibilities that we were promoting, such as the summer workcamps.
