One man’s trash is another man’s treasure

Second-hand buying culture is flourishing in Finland, especially in summer, when you can just grab a blanket, go to a park and place your soon to be sold clothes and items on that, and just enjoy a beautiful day and other people’s company while getting rid of your stuff you no longer need. Second-hand buying […]

Еден ден полн со палавштини

Кога доаѓа пролетта и кога Март перминува во Април доаѓа еден ден кога не можете да му верувате никому и на ништо. А ако веќе поверувате, ќе завршите исмејани. И тој ден е, се разбира, 1-ви Април (Апри-ли-ли-ли). Традицијата на измамување сега се шири насекаде но од каде е дојден овој обичај? Корените од каде […]

A day full of foolishness

When the spring is on its way and the month turns from March to April, there comes a day when you can’t trust anyone or anything. And if you do so, you’ll end up getting laughed at. And that day is, of course, April fool’s day. The tradition of hoaxes has now spread widely but […]

Life at home of VCS family

Starting a new thread “Life at Home” in our Voices magazine, we are reaching few members of our VCS family to ask them about their thoughts and impressions.

Extremely happy to be happy – From Finland to Macedonia

The sun sends the last rays of heat at the end of summer in late August 2018 when a 23-year-old woman sits on the living room floor at home, surrounded by all her belongings. The big red suitcase contains only two black cats leaving their hair all over as a last farewell gift to this […]

Креативното пишување може да го промени општеството

Може ли креативното пишување да го спаси светот? Можеме ли преку новелите, драмите, сказните, сториите, личните перфоманси, работилниците, проектите, медиумите, но и преку обичните разговори со кафе, чај или пиво да се бориме против моќниот непријател? Дали стереотипите, предрасудите и дискриминацијата се победливи со малку поголема свесност, волја и напор од сите нас? Една седмица […]

Creative writing can change society

Can creative writing save the world? Can we fight the powerful enemy through novels, dramas, stories, personal performances, workshops, projects, the media, but also through ordinary conversations with coffee, tea or beer? Are stereotypes, prejudices and discrimination beaten with a little more awareness, will and effort than all of us? One week sounds a bit […]
