Creativity and Pedagogy - Drama and Adult Education
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
SMouTh is developing a European strategy for its work in adult education. As part of this, we have identified a need to build the level of creativity in pedagogical practice, and the level of intercultural competency within the organization. With a view to achieving these objectives, we will be involving selected staff in a European training project, led by the UK-based organization Border Crossings, which works in intercultural theatre and adult education. They will offer an initial training in our home base, which will be followed by a 7 day structured course in the UK for 3 selected SMouTh staff members (in total: 2 courses, 6 participants). These staff will be able to develop their practice alongside people from similar organizations across Europe, benefiting not only from the training provided by a leading organization in this area, but also from the exchange of best practice with their European peers. The course will make use of creative theatre techniques to lead participants through the process of creating their own intercultural performance work, with the effect of developing a strong sense of cultural difference and the methodology of intercultural dialogue, through the Border Crossings process. The results of the activity will be disseminated through our organization using internal training forms, and more widely through the internet and social media. We envision a significant impact on the development of our organization, its work with vulnerable youth and minority groups, and its creativity in approaches to adult education.
