The Village of Bridge Bilders

A LETTER TO THE COMMUNITY OF THE BRIDGE IN GALILEE The inspiration for writing this letter was the journey of the team of Borderland to Western Galilee, in January 2016, or in the month of Sh'vat 5776, or in the month of Rabi al-Awwal 1437... So it happened in the middle of winter, in the New Year for Trees, and the first spring. Above all, however, we travelled to the people and Community of the Bridge. 
August 22, 2015 22 August 2015 Saturday morning is warm and sunny. And calm, unlike all previous mornings in the Village of Bridge Builders. And during the last, common breakfast, instead of loud talks and children outshouting each other, there is just nervousness. Tension.
August 21, 2015 - Now close your eyes and not a word. Today we are going to be silent. A lot. Trust the silence and me, I will guide you through the ritual and all our workshop. Only the person holding the stick can speak. Listen to yourselves - says Jacek Bożek. A large group sits in a circle on the pier.
August 20, 2015 Before noon The Bridge has already connected both shores. The curtain woven during the last few days hangs spread out among the trees at the gates of the amphitheatre. The scenography is almost ready. The Saturday Mystery Play is approaching. Just two days left.
August 19, 2015 The night was somehow too short. It did not bring relief. A lot of emotion during morning conversations and even long after the breakfast. You need to let off the feelings of anger and grief, sadness, hopelessness and powerlessness, all that the film showed yesterday by Jessica Kaahwa brought about.
August 18, 2015 Day and Sudden Evening Children work in their workshops and studios, very serious about their tasks, preparing for Saturday's finale in concentration. Some adults are still looking for their place in the Village, finding out which action offers best role for them. They still have some time for their search.
August 17, 2015 Noon A new order. The day begins with a meeting in the café, a schedule for the whole week needs to be done, the rhythm of the Village changes. Children have returned to the workrooms they usually work in during the year, adults – masters and guests have already had a chance to get a flavour of each workshop and studio and tried them for themselves. Now they have to settle on one of them.
August 16, 2015 Noon and afternoon Who's for herbs? Who's for Krzysztof? Who's for Mysteries of Childhood? Franek? Sergey? Jacek? Gwen? Ornit? All present? Follow me, let's begin. This is the first day of the Workshop of Herbs and Elixirs. Mariola Mitros, its host, opens the cold cellar and strong, intensive fragrances mix at the entrance.  - Just like in Jerusalem - says Ilan, an Israeli from East Galilee. Strung on a cord and hanging from a wall are dry linden tree branches, long, slender blades of grass, cornflowers and lavender. On the...
Shortcut press release They will arrive from different continents to build a bridge on the borderland Gazeta Wyborcza", Monika Żmijewska, 14 July 2015 "But it will not be an ordinary bridge - a semi-artistic, full of signs and symbols that you will need to be able to read to discover its mystery.
