Six volunteers from three sending organizations from Spain, Macedonia and Germany will take part in the project which will last for 11 months. The project will have three separate stages, in each of them a group of two volunteers will be active. They will stay at the Demonstration centers of Association “National movement workshop Sedyanka” in the towns of Veliko Tarnovo and Kazanlak, 6 months in the one city and 5 months in the other. The project will give opportunity to the volunteers to be involved in the daily activities of the hosting organization and its partners, activities which are directed towards the following: building a transcultural bridge (exchange of cultural values) between different nationalities and between generations; increasing the tolerance and empathy towards the people who are “different”; improving the image of the local cultural institutions and organizations.
The main goal of the project is to increase the tolerance of the local communities regarding the cultural differences, and to make them keep, preserve and develop their traditions, through art activities and art therapeutic sessions. The volunteers will also gain knowledge about various art techniques such like work with natural materials like wool, techniques for making lace and embroidery, and also other creative ideas for making dolls, toys, decorations, bookmarks, etc. The volunteers will present their cultural riches, for example techniques for handiwork, and will also raise their own awareness that young people should respect the elder and young people need to learn from the latter. The main slogans of the project are the following: “Unity in diversity” and “Union makes the power!”, slogans related to the European citizenship of the young Europeans, including the Bulgarians from the local communities.
The youth initiatives of the EU will be used as a means for increasing the sense of entrepreneurship and the motivation of the citizens, and increasing the adaptivity of young people and their motivation for work. The methods used will be the following: discussions, presentations, active pedagogical work. There will be workshops on art therapy, musical therapy, folk dances workshop, role plays, self-presentation, simulation games as well as activities related to the principle “Together in art”. Various meetings with specialists will be organized according to the needs and interests of the volunteers. The meetings will also help the volunteers to write articles for the newsletter.
The essence and contents of the project are based upon the principle of intercultural learning, intergenerational learning, and lifelong learning. The project aims at disseminating the EVS philosophy in the local community and encouraging the youth to take part in the EU programmes, through creativity and dissemination of cultural diversity.
