In September 2016, Vena began a journey traveling the globe with only a backpack and her violin, seeking connection from the inside-out. While she knew she was in for an adventure, what she didn't expect was the enormous outpouring of love and generosity from all the people she met in each country, and the surprising ways in which art intersected community.
2016 - 2017 GLOBE TROTTING:
ENGLAND | SPAIN | MOROCCO | NEPAL | INDIA | ITALY | CZECH REPUBLIC | GERMANY | IRELAND
In Spain, Vena volunteered as a home gardener, eco-farmer, and hostel aide. During these experiences, she connected with local communities and families with her violin, even playing at the funeral service of one Spanish family. All of this was made possible through the connections she made on workaway.info.
