  • Description


    I am a busy 55 year old intellectual living in Sofia, Bulgaria. I am looking for a workawayer willing to participate in the artistic activities I organize, and help me with my housework.
    I am an artistic person, dedicated to teaching foreign languages (English and Spanish), as well as holding art workshops - figure drawing and composition. It is my strong believe that art involves all activities we do to express ourselves - speech, sound, body movement, drawing and painting, acting. I used to run a project dedicated to arts and culture in Barcelona and then here in Sofia, but my life circumstances have made me change it a bit. I used to be settled in Barcelona, Spain, but now moved the project to Bulgaria to avoid the strict restrictions applied in Spain and impairing most of my normal human life and activities.
    In the evenings and at weekends I am running life drawing workshops with a model, so part of the job will be to do the modelling.
    I lead a very simple lifestyle, surrounded by simple but true things created by myself. As I am trying to be doing only the things I like doing , it also supposes a lifestyle different from the conventional one. I do live where I work as my "work " are my hobbies- drawing, philosophy and language teaching. Over the years I have been able to overcome most of the social taboos and reorganize my life to the completion of that.
    Meeting people from other countries is an essential part of that transformation. My attitude to living environment, food, clothes, the body itself, are unconventional. I have always tried to liberate myself from the fetishes we grow up with and are constantly surrounded by in our societies.
    So I have several very simple rules to stay at home:
    - respect each one's personal space and character
    - be polite , but not twin faced. You can always express your ideas and concerns in a more assertive way, without hurting someone's life concepts and believes
    - respect host's agenda
    - respect and accept each one's body culture the way it is, in a non-prejudiced and non-abusive manner. Nudity is considered as something habitual, non-fetish, and non-abusive (there are often models posing for the drawing sessions). However, If any of my guests find it unacceptable I always try to comply with their comfort zone as much as my basic values are not concerned. So , I would always encourage a sincere communication before accepting someone as my guest.
    I am also open to long-term stay guests. I constantly develop new projects and wood craft ideas , so there is always something to make, decorate or install at home. Any help with that is more than welcome, including in my daily routine - food preparation, house maintenance (though I live in a single room flat of 35 m2 where I also work, so there isn't much to maintain).
    Offering my guests a shared space to stay I have two extra folding beds installed.
