About the project
With this long term project we’d like to tackle the competence of youth workers to build and to facilitate the meaningful communication process with youth with fewer opportunities in order to ensure social inclusion through artistic events. One of our main aims for this project is to foster non-violent communication in educational process addressing current challenges such as intercultural dialogue in the work with people coming from rural areas or preventing radicalization of young people through such forms of art as music and drama as one of the most effective tools that can be used in this context.

The training course for youth workers is planned to be organized in Yerevan, Armenia, in 16-24 February, 2019, will be focusing on exploring plastic and audio tools for communication such as music and drama. We expect our participants to focus on self-expression and communication through art. They will try to convey different emotions by using their bodies ,voice and recycled objects as musical instruments , will become aware of personal body language and self-expression style. It’ll be followed by implementation phase when the participants will try to use the creative tools in their work with local communities back in their countries.

Objectives of the project:
– To introduce participants with and make them experience drama technique as a tool for working with youth on the topics of values, interreligious and intercultural dialogue – To discuss youth work realities in different countries and ways of communication with multicultural groups (especially those with language barriers)
