About the project
“Go Visual” is a long term training course financed by the Erasmus + Programme, the first phase of which will tack place in Russia and the second one in Armenia. It will gather 24 youth workers, youth leaders and people that works with youth from Luxembourg, Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Germany, France, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Russia and Ukraine. The idea of the project was born and developed as though the role of youth training can hardly be exaggerated in the nowadays situation, the world of youth training is also developing, reacting on the current tendencies and challenges. One of those is critical thinking, that is an essential skill and basis for personal and professional development and for peaceful behavior. One of the instruments, that can help youth workers and youth trainers to become more efficient in the process of developing critical thinking of young people is better use of visual thinking instruments, such as infographics, doodling, graphical recording and graphical facilitation. Those phenomena already exist in the world of business training and bringing very good educational results, unfortunately, not many youth trainers know how to use those instruments and how to apply them to the efficient youth work. That is why, we decided to create a long-term training course for trainers that will focus on the following objectives: – To increase awareness of use of the visual thinking tools in youth work and training and how to apply them to concrete youth training practice; – To create a common “graphical vocabulary” that can be shared with more youth trainers and youth workers; – To explore what is doodling and how to draw the simple images; – To explore what is graphical recording and how to use it in youth trainings; – To learn what is graphical facilitation, and how it works; – To become more self-expressive and to reduce risks of misunderstanding; – To learn how to stimulate critical thinking with graphical tools.

– To increase awareness of use of the visual thinking tools in youth work and training

Venue
The TC will take place in the Balcony Hostel, Yerevan, Armenia . Yerevan is the capital and the largest city of Armenia. Its population is about 1.3mln people. It is one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities. Situated along the Hrazdan River, Yerevan is the administrative, cultural, and industrial center of the country. It has been the capital since 1918, the thirteenth in the history of Armenia, and the seventh located in or around the Ararat valley. The history of Yerevan dates back to the 8th century BC. During the course of centuries, the town had an important role in the economic, social and political life of Armenia. Many caravan routes passed through that big trade center. Today Yerevan is, on the hand the administrative, cultural, and industrial center of the country and on the other hand it is a relaxed and safe place where people live at one pace while the traffic goes at another. The cultural life is intense for a city of its size, including dozens of theatres, concert halls, galleries and live music clubs.
