Eligible are 35 participants coming from: Bulgaria, Denmark, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 7th July 2019

Reconnection focuses on how we can improve our performance in youth work by improving our non-verbal communication and performing skills.

General Description

Youth work is rewarding in many aspects. However, it requires hard work, commitment, creativity, and connection.

What we understand by ‘connection’ is your own connection with your body, mind, and language.

By being aware of the mutual interconnectedness of these three and striving for their harmony, you can improve what you do and how you do it.

Would you like to join us to explore this harmony and to reconnect?

Our project, “Reconnection: Physical theatre tools for youth workers” puts this on focus: how we can improve our performance in youth work by improving our non-verbal communication and performing skills. We are going to approach this through the tools of physical theatre.

Our objectives:

  • develop communication skills through physical theatre
  • develop performing skills
  • enriching your toolkit by offering innovative activities that better responds to the needs of young people with fewer opportunities
  • provide a platform for sharing best practices

Participating countries: Bulgaria, Denmark, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Spain, the United Kingdom and Turkey.

Dates:

Arrival to the venue: 25 August 2019
Program days: 25 August – 3 September 2019
Departure from venue: 4 September
In Reconnection, you can improve your skills, competences; gain new knowledge and (re-)shape your attitude.

Physical theatre as a tool is a great way to improve social and presentational skills as well as body awareness. You can improve skills such as:

  • Communication skills (especially non verbal)
  • Communication in foreign languages
  • Problem solving skills
  • Teamwork and cooperation
  • State management: how to use body and voice
  • Performing skills
  • Co-creating and co-working
  • Creativity

Through theatre methodologies and learning by doing, we offer you knowledge what you can build in your every day work:

  • Story-telling
  • Voice control
  • Networking methods
  • Physical theatre tools
  • Basics of Lecoq pedagogy
  • Theatre and clown techniques
  • Creative facilitation tools
  • Youthpass as a tool for assessment

Training Course: Yes, and…: Improvisation for Youth Workers

Dates: 9-18 September 2019

Venue: Veselice, Czech Republic

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Czech Republic, France, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Spain

Application deadline: 29th June 2019

A 8-day training course which aims to introduce and explore principles of “improvisation” and experiment with practical and fun tools and techniques that can be readily used in daily life, creative work and in the other situations and places too.

General Description

We invite you to be, move, play, observe, listen, share, challenge ourselves, learn from within and from each other, get to know new people & ways & attitudes, and create this experience together.

Let’s explore and experiment together with activities and methods which help us to tune in into the unfolding moment and cultivate our ability to improvise.

Yes, and…: Improvisation for Youth Workers is an 8-day training course which aims to introduce and explore principles of “improvisation” and experiment with practical and fun tools and techniques that can be readily used in daily life, creative work and in the other situations and places too. Training own awareness, acceptance and sense of initiative can improve the quality of our days and the things we do. We will learn how to jump into the unknown and to respond properly to the needs of the diverse people and situations we are working with.

Why improvisation?

Improvisation serves to strengthen one’s confidence in himself and in his skills and abilities. It allows participants in training to experience visceral, ‘in the moment’ practice within an overtly reflective and supportive environment. Furthermore, improvisation encourages one to actively seek the unfamiliar, rather than simply learn to cope with it. It also represents a more fitting response to the complexity of human relations in which youth workers operate and thereby help to preserve the integrity of process-based practice.

Who is this training for?

The training was designed for youth workers, volunteers, activists, trainers and other people who work with people, that want to refresh their skills and attitudes to their days, to other people, to work and to the world.

We aim to have an overall number of 25 participants from the following countries: France, Spain, Latvia, Czech Republic, Italy, Poland, Romania and North Macedonia.

The participants must be over 18 years and have a communicative level of English language, so that they can participate fully in a program that will be in English.

This training is for you, if you…

● want to explore and experiment with specific tools from non formal artistic fields (theatre, dance, creative expression),
● want to use and imply the learned skills in your professional work with people,
● are open to sharing your own skills and learning the skills with others,
● are motivated and willing to commit to work on the objectives of the training course and participate in the whole duration of the project (preparation, training course, follow-up activities).

What will you be doing? During the training you will be:

– collecting new inputs and inspiration that renew motivations to act with commitment and new ideas.

– refreshing curiosity and playfulness in approaching your work in order to prevent burning out.

– improving your trainers’ skills to be more efficient, adaptable, responding to issues and demands in your work.

– widening your perspectives and points of view to see new opportunities, create new patterns, and avoid situations of stalemate when working with people with different cultural background.

– gathering specific tools from non formal artistic fields (theatre, dance, creative expression) that are not easily accessible for all the youth workers.

By training your own awareness, acceptance, sense of initiative you can improve the quality of your actions. We wish to support you in finding ways to more efficient and creative approach through improvisation – by developing your skills to be fully present, listen, accept and act, by equipping you with new improv based tools that you can later on use in your practice.

Working methods

We will be exploring the principles and techniques of various improvisation-based methodologies. From theatre improvisation and contact improvisation activities, going into more subtler improvisation with rhythm, music and dance, closing with creative storytelling.

The dramaturgy of the program, the red line connecting above mentioned activities, was developed around the U theory of Otto Sharmer. It will guide us through a process that helps break through past unproductive patterns of behavior.

The course will also have a strong component based on the sharing of ideas, opinions, experiences and best practices, so if you consider joining the training, start thinking of some activities, you would like to propose.

In the 10 day together, we will move, talk, listen, try, fail, try again and succeed. All in random (improvised) order.

Also, bear in mind that no artistic or impro skills are needed to attend the training.

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Accommodation and food
