Meet Alexandra Lux, workshop Talks4peace

Hi everybody!

I´m Alexandra Lux. We will meet in Talks4Peace and I´m really looking forward to that. I met Evelyn and Ronny many years ago through Markus (who´s also part of our team). I visited Peacecamp several times and this year is the 5th one where I will participate actively in one of the workshops.
I´m an Austrian high school teacher for Mathematics and History in a school near Vienna. This year two of my former students come to Peacecamp, too. I´m interested in working on the issue of finding ways of living peacefully together (with having historical developments in mind) and I´m interested in working with students.
In previous Peacecamps I found it always very enriching to learn about different point of views from the students, getting a little insight in the challenges of their daily lives and their opinions about peace issues. It´s a gift to see how the time at Peacecamp itself and sometimes even our work there have some impact on their opinions and their lives. And I´m pretty sure that this year will be a very special experience for all of us again.
I´ll participate only part-time in Talks4Peace actively as Markus and I have our little son with us. His name is Aaron, he´s 4 years old (4 years and 4 months to be precise ;-) and it´s his 5th Peacecamp now, too. He loves playing football, hide and seek, making fun, talking, singing. And he loves being at Peacecamp… He´s usually a little shy in the beginning and needs time to warm up. It´s even likely that he will scream at you and bluster. That´s his way at the moment to deal with new situations and means he is a little bit frightened and doesn´t know how what do do. Not such a big difference of how some adults behave in situations that frighten them. So don´t hesitate if you´d like to play with him, just keep it rolling and help him to learn that strangers can become friends! In Lackenhof he loves to play with the huge balls in the gym, so that´s a pretty easy way of getting in touch with him. Oh yes, he loves words and talking and singing! He even knows some words in English already. Would be fantastic if he´d learn some new words or songs in different languages from you 
See you soon!
P.S. I´m already so much looking forward to see your videos!!!!

Meet Lukas Hauptfeld, Workshop Art&Outdoor4peace

Heyo! My Name is Lukas and I am part of the "Art4Peace" Team. I am 28 years old, study medicine and have been a musician for a long time. Together, AnnPhie and I will send you through Team exercises, play games, act and, if you want to, make some noise aka music together.
2017 is going to be my fourth PeaceCamp and I am very much looking forward to meeting you all! Every single time in the Peacecamp has been completely different from the other times and has been a challenge for itself. I loved it. I know we will have a great time and best of all: every single one of us is going to be surprised and challenged way more than once in our week together
See you in July!

Meet Markus Priller, workshop Talks4peace

My name is Markus Priller. I was born in Switzerland and grew up in South Tirol, Italy, where after several decades of struggle, three different language groups now live together peacefully. I studied history and film science,but after a short career as a scientist I realized that I prefer working with people and began conducting peace projects in both Austria and abroad. During the years I have been working in different projects for the Austrian Red Cross. Focus of my work was to foster understanding and empathy for the situation of refugees and people of different cultural backgrounds. I am looking forward to meeting you all and being part of the great peace camp experience 2017
