You want to spend productive and unforgettable week with peers in the SUMMER CAMP in Germany and gain valuable experience? You are not indifferent towards the issue off migration and refugee crisis? You are ready to design and get involved in the theatre performance? You feel that racism and group focused enmity are increasing in your country? You are a migrant/ refugee or had migration/refugee experience in the past? You have experience with encountering migration or refuge (your friends, family members, class mates etc.)? You are ready to discus and reflect on these issues? If YOUR answer is YES, we are waiting for YOU!

The aim of this Trilateral Youth Exchange is to provide space for sharing different visions and experiences, to enable participants to work together on the concept of “lost home”. The workshop creates opportunity for young people from Ukraine, Russia and Germany to meet and discuss their understanding and perception of the “home land” not only as the living place, but as your cultural and ethnical surrounding, the space where and by which your identity is formed. The role play and the methods of “forum-theatre” will help you speak out and live through your experience of “losing home country”.

The workshop offers opportunity for 21 young people to share visions, develop and play a common performance about the most actual topics in the modern Europe: home vs. escape, native vs. foreign, my world vs. our world, what makes us different and what unites us.

Eligibility:
Able to communicate in English (desirable Intermediate Level)
Must be between 18-27 years old

Venue:
Most of the Workshop activities and final theater performances will be held at the Community Center in Herrenberg, in Erfurt.
