Tear Down these Walls!

The project involved two training seminars: one in Berlin (04.03- 12.03.2016) and one in Bucharest (05.09 – 12.09.2016) a practice period for new-learned non-formal educational approaches in the home-countries in-between them.

Participants had the possibility to learn, discuss and evaluate a large variety of non-formal pedagogical approaches to deal with the European east-west history and its current consequences. Reflecting on the European history and the still existing stereotypes about the “east” and the “west” is an important part of political education and a great contribute to a peaceful Europe in future.

History – Youth’s Opportunity

The main focus of the exchange was to initiate awareness among young people that through their activities and ideas can change environment in which they live and show to society the possibilities offered by history. At same time through this project young people were strengthening their competences and increasing their employment prospects. We wanted that this project changed the view of history which is only in responsibility of museums.

On project we also discussed the refugee crisis and talked with former refugees from Črnomelj who have been successfully integrated into society.

Meet Me Art – Know me through differences

The project aimed to develop an intercultural dialogue and mutual knowledge of people from countries with very different traditions through the practice of various forms of art (theatre, street art, music, figurative arts).

The countries involved in the project were four: two EU member States (Italy and Poland) and two Mediterranean partner countries (Morocco and Tunisia).

In Europe, people from North Africa are historically known almost exclusively as immigrants and are therefore linked to negative prejudices. Their culture is not commonly considered and there is no room for true and honest knowledge. With this project we aimed to change the collective feeling, giving the right emphasis on values, traditions, in short, all the positive aspects that these people bring.

One of the main goal of the project was to improve the level of acceptance and integration of differences and the protection of individual specificities. The promotion of interculturality and diversity of cultures through non-formal education was therefore the ultimate goal we wanted to achieve. Local art and traditions are the starting point we chose to begin this path of mutual discovery. They allow you to understand the depth nature of a culture by revealing the true parts of each country.
