Identity and Diversity - youth cultures in Europe
Start date: 01 Aug 2016,
End date: 31 Dec 2016
The KINDERRING BERLIN e.V. wants to organise an international youth exchange with the partner organisations from Belgium, Bonsia and Italy. Title of the Projct is: "Identity and diversity - youth cultures in Europe" and is planned to take place in Berlin. The partnership of the partizipating organisations is grown out of a network which already organised several youth exchanges and study vists in the last years. In these projects we already worked on topics and issues like human- and children rights, youth cultures, sustainable developement/ ecology and green jobs.The main goal of the project is to give the chance to the partizipants to discuss and reflect their national and cultural backround and identity and to realise differences and similatitys. To do this we´re using the methodology of youth culture approach. The project wants to enable young people to connect expieriences of different social backrounds, to explore diversity as ressource, to have a more open view on sozial developement and to be able to understand their live into an international context. We want them to learn that they are able to use their special youth culture as a possibility to articulate their needs, desires and expectations towards society. During the project we´ll organise group discussions and seminars and we´ll work in 3 workshops of youth culture contents to this topic. These workshops are: music/Hip Hop, Garffity/Streetart, photgraphie/film. In this workshops the partizipants will use the theoretical inputs of the first days and implement their personal expieriences and backrounds. At the end of the project we´ll present the wokshopresults in a presentation in the local community. (youth house Impuls) Every delegation includes 6 young people in the age of 15 to 24 and we´ll also invite 6 young people from the refugee camps around to take part in the project. The partizipants are partially from difficould sozial backrounds and dont have much experience in social interaction with other cultures and ways of living. In the project we want them to meet new youngsters of their peer group, to discuss about different realitys and be able to reflect theit identity in another way and context. We want them to question prejudices against different cultures, customs, traditions and ways of living. We want them to have the expierience of self-efficacy and enlarge their self confidence in skills and abilitys. As a result of this we hope to enlarge their perspective for personal developement and possibilitys for the future.The youth exchange is planned to take place between 15th of october till 25th of october in the region of Marzahn in Berlin.The youth house Impuls will be our base to work and will be the starting point for the exploration of Berlin. Here the group discussions, the ice braker games, the national evenings, the 3 workshops and the final presentation will take place.The partizipants will sleep in hostels in the neighbourhood of the youth house. The preparatory meeting will take place in the middle of September 2016 to disccuss and plan the inputs and workshops and inform all partners about the framework and circumstances of the exchange and to get to know the working spaces and working materials.
