British Council workshop – Living TogetherJanuary 30th, 2010 by Tricia
DigiTales ran a ‘train the trainer’ workshop in Athens from 2nd – 5th June at the British Council offices. The delegates were from Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey, Greece and…. Great Yarmouth and they will be working with 24 young people from migrant and ethnic minority backgrounds in each country to produce DigiTales as part of the British Council’s Imagine Your Future project. Imagine Your Future is part of the British Council’s Living Together programme – an intercultural dialogue project that builds trust and understanding across cultures in Europe.
Imagine Your Future aims to empower and develop young leaders from minority and migrant communities across South East Europe, giving them the tools to articulate their ambitions, promote positive perceptions for their communities and contribute to social change. The DigiTales workshop covered the whole DigiTales process, from taking the participants through Story Circle exercises and games, to developing their own powerful, personal stories. What participants said:
The whole programme was a comprehensive, intelligent and thoughtful guide to facilitating DigiTales.
really inspiring facilitators!
DigiTales will be running a second workshop in Israel in September 2008, in which 12 more trainers will be trained, from Armenia, Slovenia, Israel and Macedonia.
