MRISA CX Arts Festival- Hanoi

This year the MRISA CX was hosted at UNIS in Hanoi, Vietnam from 3-5 May.  Each year small groups of students from the 8 MRISA schools join together to experience the arts; dance, music, drama and visual artists and teachers share their expertise with students in multiple workshops over the course of three days.  The days were spent taking different workshops, exploring ones creativity and making new friends. Examples of workshops included; graffiti, world-drumming, popular dance, t-shirt making and stomp. In the evening students either got on stage themselves or watched their peers and professionals perform. This year’s participants from NISC were: Saerom Yang, Aspasie Song, Hyeok Keun Choi, Yujiin Choi, Jome Suwannarat, Sophie Ahn, Tanya Ahn, Sentosa Mam, Joobin Lee, Thuchindra (Putree) Ly, and Fahed Sharaf.

Mandala making with gr 12 psychology

The grade 12 psychology students got together to work on powder mandalas on the floor. Mandala making is an ancient and sacred art form in many traditions including Hinduism and Buddhism. After much effort and labor the students learned three very important lessons; 1. The joy of collaboration 2. the importance of appreciating the process and finally 3. the impermanence of all things. Thank you Mr. Francisco for letting me be a part of it!
