Youth takes the Stage: Theatre and Campaigning
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 30 Sep 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This is an Erasmus+ (Mobility of youth workers) project aimed at developing youth workers’ competences in facilitating youth-led campaigns using theatre methods. The project is composed of a series of three eight-day training courses to be held in three regions: Eastern Europe (Tbilisi, Georgia, November 2014), South-East Europe (Tirana, Albania, January 2015) and the EU (Stroud, United Kingdom, February 2015). The main themes of the project are youth campaigning, active citizenship, creativity and theatre. Throughout all three courses, a non-formal education, participatory learning approach will be used, following principles of acting and being an active citizen, respecting individual knowledge and skills, enabling participants to co-facilitate the learning process, sharing creative ideas and information, using art and theatre to promote active European citizenship. The project’s context/and origin are connected with GTC’s involvement in three regions: EU, South-East European countries and Eastern European and Caucasus Countries (we implemented projects in all three regions). We would also like to raise awareness of active citizenship issues among young people in Europe and its neighbourhood. Project will bring together almost a hundred youth workers (96 participants across three courses, 32 per course). The objectives of the project are: - To train youth workers and youth leaders in using theatre tools and methods in youth campaigning - To develop leadership skills of youth workers, so they can foster a new generation of youth leaders - To exchange experience and good practice in youth campaigning tools and methods - To develop youth workers’ creativity and artistic skills - To increase the quality of European co-operation between youth organisations within the Erasmus+ Programme This is a long-term, multi-measure project stretched over a year, and as such it will have a long-term impact on all partners in terms of increased capacity to work with theatre tools and to organise youth-led campaigns. It will also increase learners’ understanding of the Erasmus+/Youth Programme and lead to more international co-operation.
