Theatre of the Giraffe

This project anticipates developing competences of youth workers to communicate in a nonviolent way – acknowledging own and others’ needs, recognising and expressing emotions, building peaceful relations with young people, and co-workers.

This project anticipates developing competences of youth workers to communicate in a nonviolent way – acknowledging own and others’ needs, recognising and expressing emotions, building peaceful relations with young people, and co-workers.

The THEATRE OF THE GIRAFFE TC aims to have impact in two main areas:
* develop emphatic attitude, by building a group ready to support each other, where participants will share their challenges, contact with their emotions and needs, go through experienced frustrations, and approach them as a resource for learning
* improve/ acquire knowledge and skills in nonviolent communication as a tool to deal with similar situations in the future.

Programme will be based on two main methodologies. The frame for non-formal and informal learning will be created with methods and techniques from applied drama. From building a safe and emphatic environment, you will be invited to become more aware and familiar with your body, and later encouraged to take roles, explore various desires, and improvise in search for different strategies in the communication process, creating a forum theatre. The content to practise in that frame will be based on the Nonviolent Communication method. Participants will discover the meaning of needs and emotions for reaching a satisfactory compromise in a conflict situations. Using drama, you will practise the skills to form observations free from opinions, recognise and express needs, and to construct compromises in order to move forward in a peaceful way.

The project will gather participants from: Portugal/ Spain/ Romania/ Italy/ Germany/ France/ Estonia/ Lithuania/ former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia/ Bulgaria/ Slovenia and Poland.

With this call we are looking only for participants from ESTONIA, GERMANY, LITHUANIA AND SLOVENIA to fill in empty places. There are 2 vacancies per each of the country mentioned.
