Humans are natural storytellers. We use stories for entertainment, to communicate information, but also to make sense of the world and ourselves. Stories are everywhere, in addition to stories in books and movies, you will see storytelling used in advertising, news, politics, business and relationships – basically covering every aspect of the world around us. In this youth exchange we are going to learn how to become better storytellers. We are going to explore the universal principles of what makes a good story. The art of storytelling will be practiced through creative exercises, games, debates, workshops and theatre. Also, we are going to learn how we can apply storytelling in our personal life and for social good.
The youth exchange is going to bring together 40 people from five different countries. This will help us create a unique non-formal learning environment where you can comfortably share thoughts and ideas with other likeminded people. In addition to all of the learning activities, there will be other elements in the program that will help you make new friends and create memories for a lifetime. Come, take a leap of faith and experience something new. Many of the skills and contacts that are acquired during this event will be really useful in other aspects of your life!
Keep in mind that this is an Erasmus+ project so you do not need to pay for the housing and food. Even your travel cost will most likely be 100% covered (limits apply).
