Date du début: 1 janv. 2016,
Date de fin: 30 juin 2016
Children's tales, written or told, bring learning adventures about cultural heritage, differences and, more importantly points in common with the people in different cultures. They teach us the basics of human values that promote respect, solidarity, understanding of one's own identity, fostering a sense of belonging to a local and wider community. With this project we wanted to show that there are universal emotions that all people possess, irrespective of where we live, what kind of education or social status we have. At the same time they allow much space to develop critical thinking in individuals. All the aims of the project were realized by reading and understanding the fairy tales from all partners involved. The fairy tales that we processed and interpreted were from Slovenia, Denmark, Portugal and also 3 tales from the Middle East.
The goals of the youth exchange were met in the following ways:
• Implementation of international youth exchange, which will be an integral part of a larger local event (festival)
The participants of the youth exchange picked our three fairy tales to interpret in to theater plays. The fairy tales were the following : Slovenian- The water man, Portuguese - The prince and the unfortunate princess and Danish- The swineherd. The participants together with their group leaders worked in mixed groups and developed three theater play that letter on they spontaneously presented at the local »Fairytale Festival- Dream Land« on 21.5.2016
• Implementation of mixed activities, which will be open to the local community, in the context of a local event (for example - theater, puppetry, circus, photo exhibition, video content, animation, or other)
Besides carrying out the theater plays the participants of the youth exchange also did three street actions (promotions). The first promotion was done in front of the youth center in Trbovlje as a »practice«. Second street action was done at the local market, where the participants were dressed in their costumes and did a improvisation created by the participants. The third action was done in the form of a parade, a walk to the park where the Fairy tale festival was taking place. The participants walked in rows singing and dancing.
