CoolTúr Jam II.
Start date: Aug 1, 2016,
End date: Jan 31, 2017
Project background:As a result of Ars Omnis Cultural Association's previous programs and partnerships we managed to settle an outstanding working relationship with Italian, Romanian and the Polish organizations who had already been asked to be partners in the Budapest CoolTúr Jam program. Since the above mentioned organisations’ missions are realizing youth programs, improving European consciousness among youngsters through development courses, during the planning of several YiA programs we also set these goals for ourselves. Our first common program in Hungary was the CoolTúr Jam in 2014, organised also in the framework of Erasmus +. As the host organization, we managed to plan and run a successful program in which besides meeting all the expectations we gained a new Bulgarian partner as well.Goals:Our main goal this year is to strengthen the consciousness of Europena identity and promote intercultural dialogue.We have chosen tools like workshops, presentations, video blogs, flashmob preparation which carry the message of European diversity.The teammembers of the hosting and partner groups can create a common product while developing their creativity, self-expression, self-compliance and cooperation skills. Our mission is that the participating individuals could experience how inspiring the European diversity can be while we ourselves implement and integrate new methods into our toolset.Nevertheless we set as a goal to raise the visibility of our project involving also secondary school students. The students of Szent László Secondary Schools media faculty will document daily events and these press materials will be published on the website of our association (www.arsomnis.org) as well as our facebook page created in 2014 (www.facebook.com/coolturjam).Number of participants and (professional) backgroundThe number of participants per country is 6 plus the teamleader. In addition from the Hungarian part will broaden the circle of participants with the 4 media faculty students contributing by authoring the videoblog.The participants of the project are young people between the age of 18-30 who are willing to work with the subject of europen citizenship, who are eager to learn about other nations’ culture and are willing to promote the diversity of Europe through the videoblog interface and participating on the flashmob.The bullet points of the processPreparation: The projects logistical preparations (signing of the contracts, recruitment of the participants, organising the travels)are running parallel with working out the details of the professional program.Programweek: Under the Budapest residency of the CoolTúr Jam we are developing and training our participants competencies through workshops, presentations, creative workshops where one of the most spectacular outcome will be a flashmob created from the choreography compiled during the afternoon programs.Closure:The followup and administrational tasks needed for the project closure will be delivered by the organisation upcoming month after the programweek.Expected results, short and long term effects of the project:As a result of the program we are developing every participants’ key competences – handled with priority by the program – such as communicating in foreign languages, digital competencies, learning to learn, individual and citizenship competencies, entrepreneur competencies, , cultural competencies. Additionally as a result of the workshops and knowledge sharing participants will be able to take good practices home thus having a beneficial impact on the day-to-day life of their own organization further multiplying the visibility and effect of the project.
