We kicked it off with a tour around baobab for our newly arrived guests. We showed them all the rooms and corners, as well as baobab's underground, where the remains of the former bank are located.
For our youngest, we prepared a painting workshop where kids, with the help of colorful paints, created splendid pictures.
At the same time, the smell of gingerbread and cake was spreading all around baobab from the kitchen. Our workshop on baking and making gingerbread houses had begun. The participants found it very interesting and they had a chance to show off their cooking and artistic skills.
Around 150 people (Yep! We counted!) gathered in the welcome room after 6pm, that's how popular the concert of scholarship holders of the Homo Faber Association Development Scholarship Program was. The baobab space was filled with a musical atmosphere. Young musicians from Ukraine presented their songs to us. We could admire their performance of their songs, accompanied by piano, guitar, violin and accordion.
Members of the Belarusian Literary Club “Deep, deep, at the bottom of a cup of coffee” also performed on stage. They read the play The Tired Devil, written by the famous Belarusian playwriter Siergiej Kowalow. The author of the piece was also at the meeting and in a conversation with baobab revealed a secret of Belarusian literature: “We all complain that someone else is to blame for our mistakes. This is a traditional theme for Belarusian literature”. This meeting finished the third and last day of the grand opening of baobab.
