IDEO IDEIS #13 takes place from August 6 to 12, in Alexandria, under the slogan “How many times did you fail?”. This year`s theme suggests a change of perspective over failure: a professional or personal failure is a chance to know yourself better, to evolve in your career and even to become a better person: Amalia Enache, Ana Ularu
, Deliric, Andreea Bădală and Radu Jude got involved in this campaign and spoke publicly about a personal failure in
order to send an important message to the high school students about what perseverance means.
“Most often, maybe too often, I was disappointed in myself. I worked a lot with me not to put the blame on me so easily, for so many things anymore. For instance, when I was little I was lisping a lot and now, here I am, presenting the news on TV, and though nobody believed I would succeed in doing it. I was also disappointed in me when I failed getting admitted at the Geography faculty, at the section from which I would have become a tourist guide. For somebody with my results, it looked incomprehensible not to get admitted to college. I didn`t waste my time, I learned all kinds of things, including to give injections.” the journalist Amalia Enache, TV news
We will speak about relating to the failure again on Saturday, August 11, at The Evening of the Storytellers
, which will have more speakers than ever: the team of the DoR magazine (Cristian Lupșa, Anca Iosif and Elena Văduva), the former health minister Vlad Voiculescu, the artist Dan Perjovschi and the founders of the Dăruiește Viață Association, Carmen Uscatu and Oana Gheorghiu. Furthermore, the film director Radu Jude
and the actor Mihai Bobonete will hold a masterclass
on Friday, August 10, moderated by Cătălin Ștefănescu.
For an entire week, the inhabitants of the Alexandria town and the visitors will be able to watch 17 theatre performances (8 professional ones and 9 young amateur ones) and the center of the town will be permanently animated with street shows and concerts of the band Fanfara Transilvania.
