Report on Magdalena Montpellier by Henriette Beyer

This late summer I went for the first time to a Magdalena festival; it happened in Montpellier, based at La Bulle Bleu, a warmhearted welcoming place where handicapped and people without handicap share common spaces, work and live together, also artistically. The organisation was "fantastique", mille mercis!

Opening round, MontpellierIn late September, Magdalenas gathered in the balmy south of France for Magdalena Montpellier, a festival organised by Marion Coutarel in association with La Bulle Bleue. The festival marked the culmination of Marion's three-year residency at this arts organisation for people with disabilities.

Opening gallery: Aksana and Siarhei are on the opening of the exhibitionWe are glad to share with Magdalena that on 16 of December we’ve opened in our own space an art gallery. The first artist, who came to us, is Andrey Lyankievich.

Our website upgrade sprint is over! On Friday I waved Valentina off on her train to Holstebro, and on Saturday farewelled Agnez heading back to Brussels. The week went far too quickly ...

Today has, unfortunately, been a frustrating day at the Drupal 7 Upgrade web sprint; mainly because our server is for unknown reasons painfully slow.


The upgrade of this website to Drupal 7 has begun! Web Princess Valentina Tibaldi, and Web Witch Agnez Bewer, have arrived at the palace of Web Queen Helen Varley Jamieson to undertake the upgrade. As you can see, they are already hard at work.

I've been living in Munich for five years now, although most of my artistic work has still been elsewhere; but as my German slowly improves, I'm beginning to create opportunities and projects locally. Since the Magdalena Project is an important part of my life, I wondered about the possibility of organising a Magdalena festival here in Munich, whether there might be a need and desire for such a thing. But how to find out, when I'm a foreigner who doesn't speak the language very well and my networks within the local theatre and arts communities are limited?

After the war, were good people. We were all together ... "
