“Interculturality Enriches” is a Youth Exchange that will take place between the 21st and the 29th of August 2015 in Ezcaray (La Rioja, Spain) and that will involve 37 young people from Germany, United Kingdom and Spain in order to work together using theatre as main tool for intercultural understanding and reflection. The main aim of this project funded under the Key Action 1 of the Erasmus+ programme will be to provide to young participants a framework to explore different questions related to the main issue of the exchange (interculturality enriches) and to show them the importance of their role as citizens and on the mutual understanding of the European cultures. Using dramatic methodologies and non-formal activities, participants will discover how their cultural differences can become learning opportunities. They will explore together those cultural facts that they have in common or are different, and will reflect on the stereotypes, labels or prejudices that they could have about the countries involved on the project. Thanks to the use of the “dramatic game”, improvisations, debates or role playing, participants will share their experiences and realize about the different cultural facts of their home countries. According to this, the project will achieve a mutual understanding through a common aim: make questions and find the answers together. Besides this, the exchange will offer constant interactive activities between the young participants thanks to mixed group tasks, energizers, open air games and other methodologies related to the theatre field. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity of discovering the culture of the partner countries thanks to cultural workshops or different touristic visits. To disseminate the results of the project, participants will also implement at its end a performance on the theatre of Ezcaray that will be designed by all of them during the development of the exchange and will be not only share with the local community of the village, but also all around Europe thanks to a blog online with all the results of the project that will include the complete video of the performance in order to be shared and transferred to any other country.
