Sample text

This little clinic in particular, which will also be another major element of the opera village, is an important indicator of art’s powers of healing. Art can heal! Art is balm for the soul. And at some point there will surely also be a Remdoogo festival of film, music, and art. Not an attempt to compete with other creative artists in the city, but a festival that carries the radiant power of Burkina Faso out into the world. Yet it is a long way until we get there, a path to which our school will be central; we hope to open parts of it as early as this October.

Absorbed in that august presentiment I now enjoy the happiest moment! And my last and greatest gratitude is to God! He is more than what we have made him into! And more than anything he is boundless! Long live the opera village! To look into the face of a human being who has been helped is to look into a fair country, friend friend friend. 105 FIRST COLLAGES, SKETCHES, AND PLANS REMDOOGO 107 LOOKING FOR A SITE IN BURKINA FASO – NOVEMBER 1, 2009 REMDOOGO 109 THE SITE IS FOUND – NOVEMBER 4, 2009 SIGNING OF THE CONTRACT WITH THE GOVERNMENT – NOVEMBER 5, 2009 MODELS BY FRANCIS KÉRÉ – JANUARY 2010 REMDOOGO 111 TRANSPORT OF CONTAINERS – FEBRUARY 5, 2010 REMDOOGO LAYING OF THE FOUNDATIONAL STONE – FEBRUARY 8, 2010 113 AN UNDERGROUND WATER LINE WAS FOUND!

Yet it is a long way until we get there, a path to which our school will be central; we hope to open parts of it as early as this October. At least that is the goal toward which we should all strive together! But before I end my speech, I would like to thank first and foremost the Federal President of Germany, Horst Köhler, who has time and again supported and encouraged me in my pursuit of this idea. Learning from Africa! He liked it from the very beginning, and he sends his warm greetings and the best wishes to everyone here.
