Friday, September 1, 2017 to Monday, August 31, 2020

Workshop

Venue: Germany, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland, and the UK

This three-year project is based on a strategic partnership of like-minded organizations across Europe, working with migrant and disadvantaged communities, to develop and share practice to create a collective working methodology in intercultural training. The project lead partner, Border Crossings is a UK-based organisation working in intercultural dialogue through vocational education and performing arts. It has developed strong creative methodologies to encourage understanding between cultures through theatre and creative learning practices. The partners’ approach, experiences and areas of work are different and complementary.

The partnership is composed of two main groups according to their main roles in the project: the needs assessment group is composed by 3 organisations with direct experience dealing with the needs of migrants and vulnerable groups: Narud and AEL and dla Ziemi.  The training providers group will contribute with their innovative methods of non-verbal intercultural training: Border Crossings for theatre performance, CRN for digital storytelling, Euro-Net for humor and clowning strategies and IKTE for dance and body movement therapy. They will provide staff training workshops, create the synthesizing training and report based on the needs and accompanied by the monitoring activities of the first group.

The project will lead to a European Training Module, an online platform of intercultural training, and a documentary film.
