Waha Lounge @ street delivery 2016

I’ve been taking long breaks from this blog. I want to write more, maybe on daily basis, but I need exercise and clarity. So wish me luck, I hope it will happen at least weekly in the beginning.

So remembering summer…another yearly project that I love and enjoy making. It’s the Waha Lounge @ Street delivery festival. Street Delivery is an urban festival in Bucharest, one that draws attention to the public life of the city, trying to make the people come together and use the streets for learning, playing, creating small communities. The community feeling is quite lost in the big cities, and in Bucharest is getting lost also. So this festival is making something concrete. It closes one street in the center of the city, for cars, and opens it for people and their activities.

Everybody wants to be there. In the first years, cause I’ve been participating since it started, it was more money oriented, but in the last years something changed and the whole gathering took a nice artsy turn.

My friends that are making the Waha festival, one lovely festival in the Romanian mountains, wanted to be present again this year with a forestry lounge, to let people know about the location and line up of the festival. The challenge is to cover more than 200 square meters in only a couple of hours, as the  street starts closing only that morning.

And of course, trying to use the old walls and fences and everything there is around. After we finished, we met a really nice Norwegian writer, by accident, and also by accident he told us he came to Romania especially to go to Waha Festival. So good energies attract good people. It was a nice preview for the summer festival, where we ended up in July, but that is another story.

Waha festival ~ summer of 2013

Last summer we were invited to take care of the comfort food and drinks at the Chill Area @  Waha Festival 2013. We took care, we had fun, we made a little deco with the help of the volunteers from the festival.  There were three days of arts, love and music…and couple of more days for the before and after work:)

All the love to the people in the community, the strangers and friends we met. Thanks for the music and good energy! Special thanks to Vidi and Radu Spiridon for the pictures.

Waha sounds joyful, tribal and resonant. Waha aims to be more than a party, but an expression of existence. A space where you can be who you really are, expand your consciousness and join the others in learning, working together and helping each other to raise our level of awareness. Probably each of who was present there lived unique sensations, but for all of us we believe and hope it was such a common experience.’
