THANK YOU!

 
The USk Symposium Team wants to say THANK YOU to you, participants, instructors, lecturers, correspondants, interpreters, staff, volunteers, and to the City Council of Barcelona, CCCB (Amalia and her crew of professionals, and also the C3BAR Cafeteria), Sant Lluc, Sennelier, Moleskine, Strathmore, Cretacolor, Canson, Stillman & Birn, Tombow/Pantone, Miquel Rius, Laloran, Chartpak, Barna Art and Art Graf. We also want to say thank you to everybody who made this wonderful event possible, and to all the people who came to Barcelona even if they were not registered. We hope you can all forgive our unexperience, and we promise the next time we will try to do much better. We also want to say thank you to our relatives and couples, who sometimes thought that we were crazy having meetings and discussing for hours and hours on Skype. Our special thanks to Mireia Trius too, who presented this idea to the city council and engaged them in organizing free workshops for all the Barcelona citizens, thus creating the programme Barcelona Dibuixa (Barcelona Draws) and also providing priceless help with the organisation of the Symposium. Thank you too to the Symposium Team (Elizabeth Alley, Gabi Campanario, Jason Das and Orling Domínguez).

On a particular note, I, Swasky, want to thank my partner Elisabet for supporting me unconditionally, and I also want to thank my team in Barcelona: Daniel Castro, Marta Castro, Isaac Duenyas, César Eclectic Box, Miguel Herranz, Lapin, David Ramírez, Yadira Reyes, Sagar, Shiem, Eduardo de Vicente and Sílvia Xicola. Without you the Symposium would not have been possible.

I would like to thank all of you, the organization team, for all that you did. You did much, as much as you can , and everything achieved so well. I could always find the support I need, and I especially need. Thank you very much.

Yes, thank you! I can't say it enough!!! It was so great meeting so many wonderful people, learning so much and discovering the city with fellow sketchers. I hope to see you all again soon - cheers!

Thank you all of the organisation team. Graciés.
Por vuestra energía, simpatía y amabilidad en todo momento y por haber conseguido encajar todas las piezas de ese variopinto y complicado puzzle.
El balance es superpositivo.
Una mención especial a las intérpretes que no están en la lista, pienso en Helena Xicola y en Cristina Curto.

A thousand thanks to this whole team, for your energy, enthusiasm, talent and good cheer. I hope you enjoyed the fruits of all your hard work as much as we all did. It was unforgettable and delightful to see and sketch Barcelona with you as our guides! Until next year!!

Thank YOU, and all the team. It was worth holding my breath for a whole year to join my second USK Symposium. To be excited about sketching and to learn so much - again. To meet old friends and make new ones. Not enough days, not enough time, wish I had arrived soon and left later. Tired out and happy I am holding my breath again....
