The working methods used will be based on the principles of adult learning, creating a stress-free and motivating environment where the human brain has a full capacity to learn. All the methods will encourage active participation, creativity, initiative, and responsibility for one’s own learning process. We will focus on using backgrounds, experiences and opinions of participants, employing non-verbal tools and putting them in practice. The main tools will be visual and performance art, such as elements of theater.
The event will gather 27 participants – youth workers from 9 European countries: Belgium, Slovenia, Portugal, Spain, Hungary, Austria, Greece, Poland and Germany. We are looking for youth workers working with youth with fewer opportunities and/or who are working on awareness raising on cultural diversity and social inclusion. We want to welcome people who want to expand their horizon on the topic and learn and exchange new art-related tools to apply in their work.
