Professionals of non-formal education (18 years upwards) from Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Poland and United Kingdom who are interested in the topic of migration and escape today and in the past and moreover want to learn methods (film and photography) on how to work on this topic with young people.
AaX consists of:
- 7 day training in Krzyżowa, Poland (28.08.-03.09.2016)
- Planning and carrying out microprojects with young people in their home towns
- a 7 day youth meeting in Krzyżowa, Poland (20.-26.03.2017)
The training is part of a two-step project. Participants of the training are invited to carry out small projects on migration with young people in their home cities over the winter. They will have the chance to return to Krzyżowa with up to four young people for the international youth meeting taking place from 20.-26.03.2017. It is not obligatory to take part in the international youth meeting, but applicants with tangible ideas for carrying out projects will be given special consideration.
Since the training is going to be held in English, a high level of English is required. Please apply individually by August 1st (please see application information below).
During a methodological workshop (film and photography) youth workers will be enabled to work on this topic with young people in their local communities. After the training, participants will use their expertise to carry out small projects with young people in their home towns. They deal with the current need for standing up against violation of human rights and become active. With the help of film and photography, participants analyse the situation of migrants in their local community. Up to four young people from each country and their trainer (hence a former participant of the international training) will have the possibility to take part in an international youth meeting in Krzyżowa (20.-26.03.2017). During the youth exchange, the collected material will be analysed, edited and prepared for a public presentation, to be held at the end of the meeting in the Capital of Culture 2016, Wrocław.
