Young people from different countries and cultures get together to fight loneliness with arts
What does it mean to be alone? What is the difference between aloneness and loneliness? Can the positive aspects outweigh the negative ones? Those questions were just a bit of all the thoughts overwhelming my mind when the plane hit the ground of the Copenhagen Airport.

We had some massive singing talent over there, discovered or not.
My favorite art! It tells you so much about people, their life and the road they’ve gone. Let’s see if dancing fights loneliness!
When you put together poets from 7 different countries you can be sure it will be a strong piece of poetry!
I will tell you a secret. Everyone should have at least one secret friend. Someone to make you feel good, to surprise to and to take care of you without taking the credits for all of that. Some mysterious friend to ensure you are not alone!
The next morning I was sitting alone with the cup of espresso still releasing aromas to my sleepy head. I looked into my imaginary newspaper named “You are not alone”, the headline said indeed:
Different countries and cultures get together to fight loneliness with arts!
