(Romanian) Ana COSMOS - cu un ochi la arta si altul la surferi
Salut și bine ai venit la HerArt podcast, un proiect pentru iubitoarele și iubitorii de artă, în special arta creată de femei. Sunt foarte încântată să încep cel de-al treilea sezon al proiectului! Pentru varianta în limba engleza am pregătit 12 istorii uimitoare cu artiste din întreaga lume. În noul sezon, veți avea ocazia să ascultați și 12 interviuri, în limba română, cu artiste din Moldova. Pe Ana nu am cunoscut-o personal până în ziua interviului, chiar dacă avem prieteni comuni, drumurile noastre nu s-au intersectat niciodată dar îi cunoșteam foarte bine ilustrațiile de pe Facebook și Instagram. Niște personaje interesante, cu aere blazate de tot ce se întâmplă în lumea asta. Te captivează privirea lor, care trece de la căldură la o pierdere totală în timp și spațiu. Ana se poziționează ca observator la tot ce se întâmplă în jur. Se uită cu un ochi la cei din generația ei, iar altul caută să observe surferul care iese la mal. Relația Anei cu arta a început decând era mică. Ea avut și are privilegiul să știe că asta este ce vrea să facă în viață. În comparație cu mulți din semenii ei, Ana nu trebuie să treacă prin purgatoriul veșnicilor îndoieli din categoria “ce să fac cu viața mea?” După doi ani de studii în Republica Moldova, la Universitatea Pedagocică Ion Creangă, Ana a devenit bursiera statului român și a plecat la Cluj să-și facă studiile. Nu i-a fost frică să lase totul și să o ia de la capăt. Clujul i-a dăruit una din cele mai importante aventuri din viața ei: programul Erasmus, despre care povestește cu ochi visători. S-a întors la Cluj a dat licența și drumul a adus-o înapoi la Chișinău, unde tot încearcă să afle cu ce se ocupă tineretul de aici. Merci mult că ai fost alături de mine pentru primul interviu, din sezonul trei a podcastului HerArt - un proiect pentru iubitoarele și iubitorii de artă, în special arta creată de femei. Dacă vrei să urmaresti activitatea mea online, atunci mă găsești pe Facebook și Instagram. Un mulțumesc special prietenei mele Anastasia Efimenco, pentru că a reușit să capteze cele mai magice momente din timpul interviului. Ne auzim luna viitoare cu un alt interviu. Pe curând!
