Culture

  • We formed Csurdóka folkdance group, which holds dancing rehearsals weekly and hosts Phono dance houses monthly in the Community House of Cserépfalu. The latter is a modern version of the traditional fono including lectures, performances, folk music, folk dance and more informal conversations. Our aim with the dance house is forming a powerful local community.
 
  • In the summer of 2013 in cooperation with the local government we organised the first Colony of Artists in Cserépfalu in which 10 painters participated, who arrived from different parts of the country. As a closing event we exhibited the paintings which were made during the programme, 10 paintings of which were offered for the village of Cserépfalu. Blog

As a closing event we held an exhibition and an auction of the paintings which were made during the programme. 8 paintings were purchased by visitors of the event.
 
  • Phono is back - with more than 70 people from Cserépfalu dancing and Pipas band playing, Dr. Tibor Szász and 
     
    Dániel Siptár giving lectures during the event. Dr. Tibor Szász, honorary university professor started the programme sharing his views about sustainability. After his lecture some members of the audience asked what could be done to find solutions to some of the problems he mentioned. What can ordinary people do? „Sustainable development is a progress that satisfies current needs without endangering the chance for satisfying the needs of further generations.” This is the simplest way to put it. All of our activities have consequences, but they may only be experienced by our children. Will they be happy about it? What can a resident of Cserépfalu do about it? They can pay attention to their consumption without purchasing needlessly, or avoid purchasing food from other countries rather than food grown in the region.  Collect waste selectively, pay attention to water consumption, since water is our vital element, our body making up of 70% water. Let us quote the words of an Indian thinker here: „When the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught, the last river poisoned, only then will we realize that one cannot eat money.”
