From October 21 to November 1 2019, “E(ducational) Motion” Youth Exchange project took part in Ureki, Georgia. The aim of the Youth Exchange Program was to learn about topics such as discrimination, types of education, cultural and religious differences, violence, stereotypes and non-verbal communication through various forms of movement and dance.
It was important to reach a better understanding between different nations and overcome mistaken stereotypes with the art, specifically dancing, as a tool. The idea of the project was created to link the aims to each other, not only to find ways to go forward but also to improve and empower one another.
The days were full of fun activities, team buildings, workshops, discussions which gave everybody a chance to speak their opinion and point of view on important topics.
One of the biggest tasks for participants was to create an hour-long performance, which later was performed to the locals of the city in the theatre stage. The performance included themes like domestic violence, discrimination against people with special needs and different cultures, bullying.
Erasmus + projects! gives an opportunity to meet new people from different backgrounds, learn about various topics, do teamwork and it gives an experience of a lifetime.
