About the project: The training course “Youth, Theatre And Intercultural Dialogue - A residential training course for social inclusion” will take place in Serbia, from the 24th of September to the 1st of October 2015, for a total period of 8 days (including travelling days). 24 young people from Serbia, Spain, Hungary, Croatia, UK, France, Macedonia, Albania, Greece, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany and Portugal will participate. The main topics of the project are Intercultural Dialogue and Conflict Resolution: participants will gain skills and competences on how to promote Intercultural Dialogue among young people coming from different backgrounds to foster social inclusion in youth activities and how to manage conflict situations to achieve and promote a Peace Culture. The main aim of the project is to provide participants with new skills and competences based on Social Theatre and Applied Drama; these skills and competences are focused on how to manage conflicts, in order to promote Intercultural dialogue and Social Inclusion in youth activities. Activities will be focused on Social Theatre: participants will develop their own “toolbox” to reflect on their personal learning process, not just focused on “what I am learning”, but also on “How I am learning” and “How I can use what I am learning”. The activity programme includes icebreaking games, team-building activities, simulations, working groups, activities based on facilitation’s techniques, an outdoor presentation with an external audience and leisure activities. Participants will not acquire just new exercises and techniques, but they will learn as well how to use them, and they will experience them during the outdoor presentation and the “Learning Space Dynamic” session. The use of these specific working methods (Social Theatre and Applied Drama) involves a reflection not just on “what”, but as well on “when”, “how” and “with whom”. All the activities will be based on Non-Formal Education approach.
