YTID Youth, Theatre & Intercultural Dialogue in Serbia, October 2015
From 24th September – 1st October 2015 a group of TRY students and teachers attended an an intense 8 day workshops focused on Youth, Theatre and Intercultural Dialogue in Sremski Karlovci, Serbia. Organized by REACH organization (Regional Endeavor for Art, Culture and Health), the group consisted of 24 participants (theatre workers, youth workers, artists and pedagogues) from 12 European countries. Superbly organized workshops set the group on a life changing voyage expanding horizons of social awareness. The training course consisted of several different theatrical methodologies (applied drama, theatre of the oppressed, image theatre, and physical theatre) all based in intercultural dialogue and social inclusion. The success of the training was rooted in stimulating yet relaxed environment in which there were no wrong answers and hence no stress of failing. Furthermore, with such an open minded and multicultural group, the only natural thing was to learn from each other and broaden our horizons.
