Action! Film and Theatre as tools for exploring and developing Community Cohesion
Start date: Apr 1, 2015, End date: Apr 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Action! Film and Theatre as tools for exploring and developing Community Cohesion. A 7 day residential training course for youth workers, youth activists, community film and theatre practitioners and teachers held at the Eton Dorney Centre, Windsor. This is an experiential course in using theatre and film with young people to explore issues pertinent to their lives. The course will be delivered using drama, films & active techniques, and participants will learn how to make useful tools for delivering this work using everyday items (eg making films using mobile phones and tablets rather than high end film equipment) The course will upskill youth workers from across Europe, making them more able to engage and work with young people around issues of Human Needs, community cohesion & discrimination, as well as developing a pan-European group of youth workers who are primed to develop work together in the future. There will be 30 participants from 11 partner organisations in 10 countries from across Europe including new and older EU member states as well as accession countries. Participants will create their own films as part of the process, and the course will culminate in a public presentation of these films with a Q&A session. The participants will also produce a documentary film of the process. We will create a network of practitioners and as part of the project will plan future cooperations. The longer term benefits will be an upskilled workforce using new and innovative techniques with their groups, who will be encouraged to develop mobility projects with other groups of young people across Europe.
