Calligraphy time

On Saturday, December 8, 2018, the International Organization for Migration (IOM), Office in Romania, organized in partnership with the General Inspectorate for Immigration (IGI) and the PiArt Vision Agency, the ‘Calligraphy time’ project, whose beneficiaries were children from families of refugees who are now learning the first words in Romanian, words like “home” or “sun”.

The project, already in the fourth edition, took place at the IOM headquarters, where children come daily to learn Romanian and get support with homework and to promote education through handwriting. They have benefited from a beautiful calligraphy lesson, an important activity both in the process of learning the Romanian language and in the process of integration in our country.

During the event, the children played, drew and, most importantly, were initiated in the art of calligraphy by personalities such as Mihai Sora, Medeea Marinescu or Ana Barton, who were at the desks next to them, helping them to write and talk about the importance of calligraphy, culture, and education, the latter being the greatest chance to overcome any situation.
