Start date: Jan 11, 2016,
End date: Jun 10, 2016
Generator is a training programme for young and emerging theatre artists who are learning to facilitate drama workshops. It brings together 50 participants in Valencia, Spain, to train in methods of facilitation used by more experienced and older professions from Denmark, Ireland, Austria, Spain and Norway.The training uses a mix of peer-learning, practical demonstrations, collaborative creation, discussion and reflection to share techniques, and to pass on elements of good practice to the 18 to 30 year old participants. We hope that each participant will return to their host organization and community better equipped to lead their own workshops with children and young people in schools, youth groups and youth theatres.In this way, generator is an employability enhancement project, encouraging and supporting participants to promote themselves as drama facilitators.Generator will create a video of the project which will be available on a number of platforms, including the partners' websites. There will also be a blog detailing a number of the activities, games and exercises used in the training.The training is shared between the 6 partners, all of whom are theatres active in the field of youth theatre in Europe. It a project coordinated by Crooked House Theatre Company in Ireland.
