Training Course: ACT-ION

Dates: 17-24 September 2018

Venue: Fondo, Val Di Non, Italy

Eligible are 18 participants coming from: Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 1st August 2018

ACT-ION is a training course which will be address to youth worker, social workers and educators who developed an interest in theatre and are working for social inclusion of young people in marginalized urban areas.

General Description

The project wants to focus on the idea of social cohesion, with specific attention on civic and social skills, strengthening participant’s confidence and soft skills and their ability to implement them in their everyday life.

The general aim is to promote the use of theatre as a medium to ease communication between young people, the sense of solidarity and with the Forum-Theatre and simulation techniques, to make possible an experience based path which can help to reflect on the condition lived by marginalized and bullied people.

The Forum-Theatre is one of the techniques used in Auguso Boal’s Theatre of Oppressed, which aim to the same purpose of Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed: the humanization through dialogue and the start of changing from a naïve and fatalist conscience (that lead to a feeling of powerlessness towards the world) to a critical conscience (capable of modifying the context where it lives) make very topical this form of expression, born in ’70 in Latin America.

The TC will combine this main part with the use of several non-formal education methodology, used by L’Orma in years of ordinary activities. Physical, expressive and theatrical workshops will be focused on the dismantling of the existing social barriers in the youngsters contexts (schools, cultural and recreative centers, etc.), on stimulating to active participation of every member of a group despite their socio-economical conditions, on easing communication, solidarity and inclusion between youngsters through the development of empathy, which is the first step to accept and understand the otherness.

In order to underline the European dimension of the project, participants will have to identify common values, share their points of view and identities with participants from other countries: that means not only the discovering of different cultures, but also the building process of a future Europe, stimulating participants to discuss about topics that concern their communities, in order to find common solutions and give birth to new collaborations, developing a common sense of European citizenship.

Totalitarianism emerged in Europe by World War II as a popular type of governance seeking to promote state power and reduce the power of civilians. Totalitarian governments establish rigid rules and regulations for citizens, controlled all aspects of daily life by making education, banking and other key services fall under the control of the government. Roma were seen by the Nazis as being inferior, they were not as good a human being as the superior race.

Dates: 1-12 August 2018

Venue: Bad Bevensen & Berlin, Germany

Eligible are 32 participants coming from: Germany, Lithuania, Poland

Application deadline: 30th June 2018

International summer program for youth leaders / youth workers from Germany, Poland, Lithuania & Northern Ireland. Our methods will be designed for train the trainers’ needs: inspiring, intercultural and integrative.

General Description

Who tells the truth in times of post-truth politics? Which is the true story of our past? What is the story of democracy in our countries? Which different stories shape societies in times of immigration and diversity? What is the story of our lives as (future) active citizens?

With this project we will make stories happen; we will not just share them. We will use them to understand each other, to compare our narratives, to learn about the different paths to democracy in our countries, to understand the concept of diversity and to design our future projects as activists of civil society.

1. The truth about the past: How did we become the people who we are? We will look at the historic narratives describing our (national) identity and our paths to democracy.
2. The truth about democracy: How do we decide which policy will do? Is democracy always the rule of the majority? Who feels represented and who feels left behind? (simulation game & talks with political decision makers)
3. The truth about diversity: How do we perceive what keeps societies together? Do we have homogenous and diverse societies in Europe? Are we part of the “Christian occident”? This part is on facing diversity and handling it. (diversity training, dialogue exercises and field visits to NGOs and projects of civil society)
4. The truth about development: How do we design, what we will do? Here we will write the story of our future.
