La Gente Feliz

<p> Presentation disponible en Français: </p> <p> <a href="" target="_blank"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> Presentación en Español disponible: </p> <p> <a href="" target="_blank"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Who-1430047729" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> My name is Alice, I am a second year student in Fine Art - Media at the National College of Art and Design (Dublin, Ireland)</p> <p> Coming from a drama and dancing training, I create my project from my body experience of the world.</p> <p> What brings me to the Camino de Santiago which I walked twice.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Carte_provinces_camino_frances-1429139525" src=""></p> <p> <em>The Camino francés, from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port (France) to Santiago de Compostela (Spain)</em></p> <p>  </p> <p> The first time, I was 9 and walked from Burgos to Santiago de Compostela with my father, Sylvie and my little sister. The second time, I went on my own on the summer of my 23rd birthday (the red feet are mine!)</p> <p> <img alt="1170801_10201957550689458_1768747143_n-1429119622" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> I know the <strong>Camino's stories</strong>, I have even been one of them!</p> <p> I know the <strong>personal challenge</strong> it could be, <strong>often way more than only going to Santiago</strong>.</p> <p> I know that <strong>everybody has their reason to be on that path</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Whatproject-1430048052" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="1236088_10201957543889288_83705939_n-1429119668" src=""></p> <p> <em>(David who offers water to the pilgrims after a dry and hard part on the hills before Astorga. Translation: « Big changes are made by little details » )</em></p> <p>  </p> <p> For that reason, I would like to be for 7 days or more, waiting for the pilgrims to arrive at the end of the Camino - the Cathedral's place in Santiago - and <strong>print my 35mm film with their smile, and receive if they want to share it how do it feels to have done it.</strong></p> <p> Then, I will make an <strong>edition from that joys and personal successes</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The project is called «  La Gente Feliz »   what means in Spanish « Happy People »</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Untitled-2-1429119816" src=""></p> <p> <em>My 1999 and 2013 Compostelana, overlapped with a drawing I stenciled after the Camino.</em></p>

Allocation of funds

<p> That dream needs support to come true…</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="1175334_10201957584050292_969593508_n-1429177918" src=""></p> <p> <img alt="Whathelp-1430048813" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> The first part of the project, which is going to Santiago and take the photographs, and needs a minimum of 830€:</p> <p> The <strong>return ticket</strong> in bus from France to Santiago is around 200€. Then, everyday - counting the <strong>accommodation</strong>, the <strong>meals</strong> and the <strong>photographic rolls</strong> - costs me 90€ (7days=630€)</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>+++++++</strong></p> <p> To that budget, I have to add the cost of the <strong>rewards </strong>(the most wonderful smiles will be printed on badges, calendars, bags…) and the <strong>commission the bank and the website take</strong> on the amount I would have been able to collect.</p> <p> This gives a total of <strong>1500€</strong></p> <p> <img alt="Budgetexplainations-1431601038" src=""></p> <p> <img alt="Whatgoal-1430217488" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> This is <strong>wonderful news</strong> and opens <strong>two possibilities</strong>:</p> <p> Or, every 100€ going over the target <strong>add a day </strong>in Santiago for more photographs and more smiles! (90€+commission)</p> <p> Or, you s<strong>upport the second part of the project</strong>...which is the future of the best photographs (i<u>f it goes well, it can bring to an exhibition on a gallery</u>)</p> <p> <strong>It is you to choose</strong>, you just have to mention your choice in comment after you donation!</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Howhappy-1430217578" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> First, because it is a need to support the little joys and simple things…<strong>you are taking position in the smiling side!</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Then, because we want to <strong>spread that joy</strong> and <strong>make it shine around us</strong>, I made up <strong>accessories that are going to be printed with the most wonderful smiles</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> And to be sure to make you smile, this little test will tell you what happy person you are:</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Quelheureux-anglais-1431599902" src=""></p> <p> <em>Find out your answer in the drop-down menu on the right!</em></p> <p> <em>So? What happy (wo)man are you?  Does that look like you? Share you result!</em></p> <p> <em>It doesn’t look like you but you had a good time? Share the test! or do it again… ;)</em></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Thanks-1430217725" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Thanks for your attention, I hope I give you the will to support that project!!!</strong></p> <p> <strong>Talk to you soon for some fresh news!!!!</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Alice</p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>© photographs by Sara Mancini</em></p>
