We would like to invite youth workers and embodied arts facilitators to explore usage of embodied arts for youth work as powerful tools for social inclusion.

General Description

Body Poetry is a space for creativity, art and inspirational sparks where we will share Theatre, Dance, Circus, Body Expression and other embodied arts methods to be used in youth work as powerful tools for Social Inclusion.

  •  Embodied arts facilitators: Those working with the body in a creative way (theatre, dance, movement practices, contact improvisation, circus, martial arts, street art, body expression, body work, impro techniques…) and that have experience facilitating in front of the group.
  • Youth workers: Those working with young people at risk of Social Exclusion (including young people with disabilities, Roma community and with migrant backgrounds, LGBTIQ+ young people…) that are interested in embodied arts methods but don’t have much experience and tools for applying them with their target group.

Our Training Course – Embodied Arts Laboratory is a meeting point for the Embodied Arts Facilitators and Youth Workers to share ideas, approaches, techniques and experiences with colleagues working with body methods and in the field of Social Inclusion from all over Europe.

As an Embodied Arts Facilitator you will have the chance to receive training in Embodied Arts forms proposed by our Body Poetry Facilitators and by other colleagues from all over Europe.

You will have the chance to facilitate a workshop for sharing with the youth workers your area of expertise and to work together mentoring a group for designing inclusive workshops for young people at risk of Social Exclusion.

As a Youth Worker you will have the chance to receive training in different Embodied Arts forms by Facilitators from all over Europe. You will get tools for adapting the Embodied Arts methods for meeting the needs of your target group and will receive mentoring on how to design, implement and evaluate inclusive Embodied Arts workshops for groups of young people at risk of Social Exclusion.

As a result of the project, the Embodied Arts Facilitators will receive professional peer-training and will have the chance to practice their facilitation and mentoring skills.

Conference: 17th International youth conference European Values for the future of SEE Countries

Dates: 26-30 September 2019

Venue: Krusevo, Republic of North Macedonia

Eligible are 68 participants coming from: Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Turkey

Application deadline: 25th August 2019

Traditional International Youth Conference brings together the most valuable young leaders, workers and activists from the region for the past 17 years (since 2003).

General Description

The International Youth Conference “European Values for the Future of the SEE Countries “was held for the very first time in 2003. The European values in the SEE countries were a significant issue affecting everyone.

Now, 17 years from the organization of the first conference, the topic is still fresh and unanswered, but the political – economic map of the region has notably changed. Although all countries embarked from the same point, the situation today with all of them is different.

Some of the countries of the region like Slovenia, Bulgaria, Romania and Croatia became members of the Euro-Atlantic integration structures. Others, like Montenegro and Serbia are already on a good path to achieving their goal.

Others like Republic of North Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Albania and Turkey are somewhere half way, each of them trying to overcome their specific problems. It is obvious that the situation is complicated and takes a lot of work and motivation for the mosaic of values to be properly compiled.

All societies and entities from the region share the same aspirations of integration in the Euro-Atlantic structures and they all understand that the joint collaboration is the right way to build a sustainable future.

The strategy of expanding the EU not only promotes stability, but also is based on regional collaboration, mutual understanding and respect, healthy neighborly relations based on open cooperation, reconciliation and addressing issues of the past with sobriety.

The International Youth Conference “European Values for the Future of SEE Countries“ for seventeen consecutive years lives as a forum where 68 active, successful and able young leaders, youth workers and representatives of prominent NGOs from 16 countries.

Those fighters for a better future are sharing their visions, strategies, campaigns and way of thinking during the 5-day forum. They are using the Conference as an orientation marker for their future plans in the field of European values because it is well known that the conference is the perfect base for proclaiming new ideas and creating new politics.

The International Youth Conference is a unique place, a cultural crossroad where discussions for: rule of law, democracy, human rights, freedom of speech, free-market economy, political inclusiveness and right of free sexual orientation, are mixing while we are putting together the mosaic of the future.

Training Course: DocuSpeech for Human Rights Education

Dates: 2-11 September 2019

Venue: Yerevan, Armenia

Eligible are 31 participants coming from: Armenia, Georgia, Germany, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Portugal

Application deadline: 12th July 2019

The project “DocuSpeech for Human Rights Education” is a 10 day Training Course that will take place in Yerevan, Armenia. During the activity educational video materials will be created to use in youth work to promote Human Rights Education

General Description

The project “DocuSpeech for Human Rights Education” is a 10 day Training Course that will take place in Yerevan, Armenia. It will gather 31 youth leaders, youth workers from Norway, Luxembourg, Portugal, Armenia, Georgia, Germany and Poland.

During the activity educational video materials will be created to use in youth work to promote Human Rights Education. As an outcome of the project the team and the participants will prepare the recommendations for the educators/trainers for using effectively video-making in human rights education.

The idea of the project is a follow-up of the TC “DocuSpeech against Hate Speech” (1-10 December, 2018, Luxembourg) which became a proof that film-making is a strategic tool for the youth workers as media tools are being used in the education of young people to increase understanding of peace and tolerance.

During the project 5 video materials and the session outlines were developed to use them in educational process. The sessions are already experienced effectively. Film and especially documentary films help youth workers to expand the world of their beneficiaries, introducing them to values, struggles, innovations, and beliefs beyond our daily experience.

Today, the short form documentary has filled a key role in both formal education and non-formal education. Using short documentary films in a meaningful and compelling way for young people is building social and emotional awareness on issues of intolerance, discrimination and Human Rights.

Objectives of the Project

• To develop the competences of the participants to produce educational video materials to use in youth work to promote Human Rights Education;
• To foster social inclusion especially of the young people with disabilities and fewer opportunities in general;
• To develop the competences of youth workers and youth leaders in making films in various formats;
• To develop non-formal framework for film-making as a tool for transformative learning;

• To promote understanding of the principles of democracy and participation and its influence on young people’s lives;
• To create audiovisual tools (will be uploaded also on the SALTO toolbox), with the concept of educational documentary;
• To support the field presence of the European Commission in order to promote the values behind the institution.

Costs

 

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

As the seminar aims to tackle strictly methodological aspects, thus we are addressing this invitation to those who are researchers as well as representatives of National Agencies of the Erasmus+ Programme involved and interested in research on Erasmus+-related areas.

The NAs are encouraged to nominate more than 1 researcher per country. Researchers are invited to contribute as presenters to the sessions on research limitations and unsupported conclusions.
