The campaign encourages voluntary and regular blood donation by informing the public of the many benefits of this act . We chose to launch this campaign because we believe that the Romanian Health System needs support and in this sense, we want the campaign that we conduct to have a significant impact on the Cluj population.
Mirages Cultural Festival is an event dedicated to integration of youngsters with special needs through theater, dance and music.
Founded in 2008, the Festival managed to gather on the same stage over 2.250 young people with or without disabilities, who performed in front of an audience of over 7.000 persons.
For many of youngsters with special needs this Festival is their single chance to have a moment of glory and be appreciated. For others, this is just an experience they could be proud of. But for all Mirages is the catalyst, the extra self-confidence they need in order to evolve, to want more from their lives. We believe that this Festival give them the opportunity for personal development and career guidance in a world where jobs are few for the persons with special needs.
You can find a short presentation of the Mirages Cultural Festival here:
Each year we bring something new on the Agenda. In 2014 we extended the Festival to a 4 days event. Among regular theater, dance and music representations we organized improvisation workshops for youngsters with special needs, who came from all over the country, and young people from regular state schools from Cluj-Napoca.
In 2014 we wanted to make the event more visible and popular to public. So, we organized a special event: “Coffee shop in the dark”. The event was a successful one: over 120 persons came an experience for 2 hours what is to live in the dark.
This is what happened on 7th edition of Mirages Cultural Festival:
For 2015 Edition we will organized another special event: “Human Library”, where youngsters with special needs will learn from successful youngsters with special needs (writers, artists, teachers) that disabilities is not a limit in the way of a career. The event will be open to the public.
