1        Introduction

In The year in which Romania holds the presidency of the Council of the European Union, declaring the slogan „Cohesion, a European value”, our project defines in its deepest essence all the desiderates involved therein.

The „Festival of Arts” project aims at increasing and disseminating national and universal culture within a series of artistic events that bring together all areas of art and which aim to cohesion between masters and disciples, between consecrated artists and talented young people who are formed in the artistic field.

     As we have demonstrated in all the events already organized, one of the most important results of the „Festival of Arts” project and its preparatory season, called the „Prologue of the Festival”, is that young and talented children across the region can be asserted and can become known locally, nationally and internationally.

Relaxation and restoration of resources during the holiday made it necessary to find a venue for the Festival so that young people benefit from several advantages, all offered by the wonderful city of Câmpina: isolation from intense road traffic, picturesque settlement, clean air, sunny days, all with a beneficial effect on health.

2        Festival of Arts Overview

Our project starts from the idea of ​​satisfying the need for rest and recreation while studying daily in a professional, competitive and enjoyable environment.

We believe that joining the four areas – music, visual arts, acting and creative writing – contributes to the development of the artistic spirit and the individual motivation of the participants.

At the same time, we found that among students there is a desire to participate in events that combine the courses supported by renowned professors, with the possibility of socializing with colleagues from different areas of the country as well as from abroad.

Finally, we leave open the participation of children who want to take the first steps in the artistic field, organizing for them courses of initiation in music, on different instruments, in visual arts, in acting or creative writing. We also want to accommodate adults who want to develop or refine an artistic hobby in the fields of visual arts, acting or creative writing.

2.1       Music

Musical classes, individual study, cenacles and drama courses will take place in high schools in Câmpina, at the “Geo Bogza” House of Culture, at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church and in other locations with pianos.

The young musicians will be able to participate in chamber ensembles and, given the existence of a fairly large number of students, an orchestra will be set up to prepare a final concert. Also, students of musicology will be guided to write music chronicles for the whole period of the festival, and the most valuable works will be published in the festival’s magazine.

Students from the Composition Masterclass can present their works in the first absolute audition at the festival.

Participants will perform concerts and recitals in different days and locations. The finality of the Festival will be a concert of a greater magnitude.

2.2       Visual arts

Visual art courses – painting workshops – will be organized in 3 groups (grades II-IV, grades V-VIII and grades IX-XII +), 2 hours per workshop every day. The painting workshop is designed to develop participants’ creativity and explore the field of fine arts. Students will work together with the age group they will be part of. At the end of the Festival, the works of all participants will be exhibited in the hall where the Final Concert will take place and will be published in the Festival brochure.

2.3       Drama courses

Theater and acting courses are designed to give learners the opportunity to develop in multiple ways, including helping them to become better acquainted with themselves, developing their communication skills, vocabulary, creativity and the ability to socialize with ease. Mr. Lect. Univ. Dr. Mihai Bisericanu and Dr. Loreta Neculai will reveal to the theater and film enthusiasts multiple perspectives of the actor profession. The course will introduce practical notions about diction and movement, propose exciting imaginative exercises, provide techniques for translating personal experiences into acting and the life of a character. The course will offer various improvisation games designed to develop attention, responsiveness and memory capacity. As an immediate result of the course, participants will gain confidence in their own strengths, acquire insight into interpersonal relationships, and learn to react spontaneously. At the end of the festival, the students of this section will present a play with the script they designed during the course. 

2.4       Creative writing

With a vast experience of writers and organizers and teachers in literary creation camps, Mr. Florin Dochia will ensure that these courses are conducted at the highest level of creativity, professionalism and efficiency, finalizing with the publication of the works written by the students in the magazine of the Festival of Arts made with the support of Master Florin Dochia.

The stated purpose of these activities is to attract and cultivate new literary talents, including the participation of young people and children with talent in this artistic field.
