Soc la curator 112a del Catalan Voices del DIPLOCAT

Mai 3, 2015 at 6:12 pm (inventaris)

Hola a tothom! Pels que tingueu twitter, durant aquesta setmana soc la curator número 112 del compte @CatalanVoices del DIPLOCAT (Consell de Diplomàcia Pública de Catalunya), tuitejant en anglès per a una audiència internacional, parlant de la meva vida quotidiana, interressos… De moment el major èxit de favs i RTs se’ls han endut la Canica i la Mitsuko i un tuit sobre enciams plantats al carrer…! Si us ve de gust seguir el compte i si us vaga interactuar, fantàstic! :-) Aquí trobareu la meva presentació, en anglès, que reprodueixo a continuació!


Hi there!

My name is Mariona Sanfeliu, I am 35 years old, and I am from Barcelona. My twitter handle is@marionaxs. I’ll try to give you a few hints of my life and endeavours.

I live with a ten years old foster child, who has been living with me since she was six. We are not alone, we have a lot of fun with our pets Canica (dog) and Mitsuko (cat). And I am vegan. It means I try to live in the most respectful way for other animals, and I aim to reduce their suffering by running a vegan lifestyle (not only in terms of food, but also in the way I dress, the toiletries I use…).

I am currently working on digital media as a sales assistant, for a Catalan digital news site (VilaWeb) and for a health and nutrition online magazine (Etselquemenges). I also write about theater and books for an online cultural website called NÚVOL (which stands for Network Updaters Volunteering OnLine). And I keep a blog called Inventariant (I like making inventories of anything).

Since I was a child I have been an avid reader, and I graduated in Philosophy at Barcelona University (UB) in 2002. Later I moved my focus towards the Information Management at Open University of Catalonia (UOC), an emerging field that has enabled me to work in libraries, archives, consulting firms, publishing and digital media. I have also been a member of UOCmeet, a community of graduates who meet to exchange their knowledge and experiences.

I am involved in several associations. First and foremost I belong to AFABAR (association for foster families in Barcelona) where I am currently the vice-president. I’m also committed with other associative projects such as Can Batlló, a collective cooperative self-managed space in La Bordeta quarter, which is run by the local community.

In my spare time I have participated in reading clubs, dancing schools, and choirs. And I have also devoted myself to leisure education for ten years and volunteered for an organization that works for homeless people, the Centre Obert Heura. And last but not least, my daughter and I belong toCastellers de la Vila de Gràcia (this incredible Catalan tradition that consists in build human towers called “castells”, included in the Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity since 2010) with whom we travel around Catalonia and abroad.

I am glad and honored of being the 112th curator of CatalanVoices this week!


I com a bona documentalista me’ls vaig guardar. Però com que “en casa del herrero cuchillo de palo”, em faltaria completar-los amb les imatges, que també les tinc. Queda pendent, però aquí us poso una part de la “chicha”, pendent de completar-la fins al diumenge!:

Thanks @estersarquella! I’m both nervous and glad of being next @catalanvoices this week! Contenta de representar uns dies #Catalunya al món
Hello! I am excited to be a @catalanvoice broa​r​dcasting my ideas and lifestyle to the world this week! This is me:
Special shoutouts for our new followers @CatalanVoices and @LovelyJapan01. Nice to meet you:)
.@We_Japan @LovelyJapan01 nice to meet you too! Here in #Barcelona we have @CasaAsia, that promote relations among Asian & Spanish societies
@CatalanVoices That’s very interesting! Are you personally involved in @CasaAsia?
.@We_Japan @CasaAsia not really…! But I’ve heard a lot about it and it’s very known for Asia lovers here in Barcelona ^_^
@CatalanVoices I always wanted to visit Spain esp. #Barcelona and Alhambra.
.@We_Japan good choices! Just schedule it ;)
.@CatalanVoices @CasaAsia I see! It sounds so exciting. Now I wonder which Asian countries are covered there.
Let me introduce you our friends Mitsuko & Canica, street cat & shelter dog They remind me @muttscomics #MoochandEarl
How much is your country committed to animals rights? We have organizations like @FAADAorg (@movetheworld) @liberaONG
.@markhawthorne great! Here we have @APDACops that coordinates different police org (both local&national) #protectanimals cc @Nordic_Voices
I like to find faces in places. The #Iseefaces or #facesinplaces movement is spreading all over the planet #hairstyle

@CatalanVoices That can only happen in Barcelona!!!!
How does street #bicycleparkings work in your city? This is our system in #Barcelona
@CatalanVoices I think that #barcelona (and Catalan cities) should improve this easy-usual but ugly parking system, don’t you?
@gildevic @CatalanVoices Something like this would be great
.@mutsuda @gildevic I agree with you both! There are only a few of other parking systems in #Eixample quarter #bikes
Today is the big day! Schoolchildren aged 8-13 singing a composition made expressly for #Cantania @lauditori project:

@CatalanVoices Me too! I am deaf, so I have also #multilingual thoughts in #catalan, #castellano, #english or #signlanguage! That’s great!
.@martavmaristany amazing! I studied #LSC (#LlenguadeSignesCatalana) in @agils_com and I enjoyed it a lot. It should be taught in schools!
@CatalanVoices Ha ha! The world is so small, “El món és un mocador”! The boss Joan of @agils_com is a good mate. I am a @DifuSord volunteer
.@martavmaristany @agils_com @DifuSord i tant, Marta, el món és un mocador! En Joan corria x allà i la meva professora va ser la Vanessa :)

This is a “pinya” (pinneapple) of a “#castell net” (Here more info in #english: …) #HumanTowers
@CatalanVoices I think that a better translation of “pinya” is pinecone
.@tonvaldi I think you are right! Certainly “pinecone” it’s easy to understand ;) Thanks! #pinya #castellers @cvg_cat
