MEMBERS' ACTIVITIES CO-ABITARE Co Abitare (living together) is an exhibition of carpets made by the Venetian Artist Anna Moro-Lin, on show at the Museo di Palazzo Mocenigo in Venice until 28th February, 2004. Anna was waiting for the New Year 2003 to arrive with me in London when she began to plan her Art project for 2004. In January 2003, Anna asked her friends to write a short piece about themselves. She received forty replies, including poems, autobiographies, drawings, a music score, a family tree, and a prayer. Anna was astounded at the response and began to think how best to incorporate them into a work of art. She said that the carpet idea came to her when she was in a garden in Venice with her students and she began to concentrate on the landscape. She mused on the unseen but most essential part of the garden, the Roots. These Roots, she said, create kepos (a Greek word meaning creativity space). According to Anna a carpet often represents a garden; it occupies space and its shape establishes the borders with the outside world. She continued "Our link with the carpet is not only physical. It is mentally possible to stand on one and collect your thoughts, concentrate, pray, fly..."

Extractions: German web: www.suriname.ch Nature and Culture Suriname is a land of enormous cultural diversity and one of the few spots in the world where the tropical rainforest still completely virginal. The Republic of Suriname is the second smallest nation of the South American continent (63.675 sq. miles), as well as the least explored and least densely inhabited tropical country in the world, with 420,000 inhabitants consisting mainly of Amerindians, Afro-Surinamers or Creoles, East Indians, Javanese and Chinese. About 90 percent of the Surinamese population resides in the country's costal area. Suriname has tremendous ecotourism potential and in fact, was in the early 1970's one of the first countries to carry out successful rainforest tourism. Suriname has extraordinary ecotourism allure, an undisturbed rainforest wilderness and cultural attractions that are unique and mot to be found in the rest of South America. The country's unusual blend of African (including the Bushnegro cultures of the interior), Asian, European and native Amerindian culture elements contribute to Suriname's tourism appeal. These attractions offer significant opportunities for Suriname to capitalize upon its competitive advantage over other tropical tourism destinations.

Extractions: Paramaribo - Culture Suriname's ethnic mix is reflected in the religious allegiances of its people. The most important Christian denominations are Roman Catholic and Moravian Brethren, but many Christian groups also practice traditional African beliefs such as obeah and winti. About 80% of the East Indian population are Hindu. Although Dutch is the official language, the vernacular Sranan (also known as Surinaams), an English-based creole, is widely spoken. Hindi, Javanese, Chinese, Djuka and Saramaccan (both English-based creoles) and various Amerindian languages are also spoken. The development of a strong national arts scene has been hampered by the fact that many of the country's intelligentsia live abroad (mostly in the Netherlands), partly because of greater economic opportunities and partly because of military repression. However, gamelan offers an insight into the cultural life of the Indonesian community; sculpture and carvings express the values of the Amerindian and Bush Negro populations. Suriname's food is an exotic mix of East Indian, Indian, Creole and Chinese cuisines; the cheapest eateries are warungs, Javanese food stalls serving fried noodle and rice dishes.

People And Culture Humans first settled in the Southern savannas of suriname some 10000 years Our modern art scene also draws its inspiration from our cultural diversity. http://www1.sr.net/~t100956/people_and_culture.htm
Extractions: History Humans first settled in the Southern savannas of Suriname some 10,000 years ago, while Arrawak Indians were the first to settle in Suriname's coastal area around 500 AD. Around 1100 AD, Carib Indians also settled in Suriname. Suriname was first seen by whites at the end of the 15th century, namely by the Spaniards, who were not interested in colonizing the area, however. Alonso de Ojeda, who accompanied Columbus, is generally considered Suriname's 'discoverer,' but it is not certain whether he set foot on land. Domingo de Vera took possession of the area for the Spanish crown only in 1593. Suriname became a colony that changed hands between the Spanish, English and Dutch. Plantations were set up during the next centuries as the main economical activity. The labor force on the plantations consisted of African slaves, many of whom escaped to the interior and fought against the white colonists. These escaped slaves and their descendants have developed a unique culture with many African influences. Slavery was abolished in 1863, and contract laborers from China, India and Indonesia replaced the former slaves. However, the plantations had no future, and Suriname's economy soon acquired another base. Bauxite was discovered in the Marowijne area at the beginning of the 20th century, and soon bauxite mining became the most important economic activity, particularly during World War II. Suriname became an autonomous part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in 1954. Full independence was granted in 1975. Now, Suriname is a constitutional democracy seeking its own place in the world.

Extractions: Info Suriname Info Malaria Destinations Tourpackages ... Bersaba Suriname Little is known in the outside world about this tropical paradise. Suriname is what the old very tales called this land " El Dorado" which means the place of Gold. In 1998, an area of 6,000 square miles was declared the Central Suriname Nature Reserve. It is the largest protected tropical forest area in the world. Once you have visited Suriname, and enjoyed its diversity of cultures and the magnificent unspoiled stretch of rainforest, you will be amazed. The interior of Suriname is unique and, without question, it is a MUST to visit the Maroon and indigenous, Amerindian communities there. The way of life of these people has by and large remained untouched over the centuries. Since tourism to the villages is still in its infancy, they have not yet been corrupted. The inhabitants are usually as curious about you as you are about them. Become acquainted with the culture and hospitality of this fascinating environment, where the past can still be felt. The fascinating Amazone area will show you the beauty of wild life. In the jungle there are more than eight Westerners, life in the interior is of an unfamiliar purity; one valuing nature and closely different apes, hundreds of colourful tropical birds, and numerous unknown plants and insects. For - knit communities.

Extractions: A NEW "JAVANESENESS" History At 9 August 1890 the first Javanese went ashore in Suriname. Between 1890 and 1939 some 33,000 people migrated from Central and East Java to Suriname, a country four time the size of West Java and located in the northeast of South America (Ismael, 1949; Suparlan, 1976; de Waal Malefijt, 1963). They were lured into working in plantations by the Dutch colonial administration. They were promised riches by the end of the five-year contract when they would return to their villages. These promises turned out for many of them to be false. By the end of the contract many Javanese were not rich. Around 7,600 persons were "carried back" in the first half of the 20th century (Ismael, 1949). At present the Surinam Javanese migrants are divided into three main groups. The first group is the majority who remained in Suriname, got married and formed the Javanese diaspora . This community strives to preserve and develop its culture in the new homeland. The Javanese form the third largest ethnic group in Suriname after Creoles and Hindus of Indian origin, and represent some 20 % of the total population of around 400,000. In contrast to the Hindustanis, who also arrived as indentured labourers, the socio-economic development of the Javanese in Suriname is still poorly documented (Hoefte, 1998) .

Independence from the Netherlands was granted in 1975. Five years later the civilian government was replaced by a military regime that soon declared a socialist republic. It continued to rule through a succession of nominally civilian administrations until 1987, when international pressure finally brought about a democratic election. In 1989, the military overthrew the civilian government, but a democratically elected government returned to power in 1991.
