Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Youth Exchange called “Dance Mediation” which will take place from 13th until 21st September 2021 in Montelimar, France.
We want to develop intercultural dialogue, tolerance, mutual respect, solidarity of young people from different countries and backgrounds by implementing their creative capacities around this collective project. The group will work together on an artistic and cultural project by performing mediation acts. This will also make it possible to live a common adventure of creation, to understand concretely what makes them different and at the same time what makes them bearers of common values, in order to fight against all forms of violence and free the voices of mediation and of reconciliation.
The entry point of this project will be dance with physical contact to better understand violence in all its forms.
The dance activity brings into play a complex means of communication within which language has its place but linked to other languages (gestures, looks, space, etc.). In this way, dance enables people to acquire skills and know-how which are essential values for the practice of this art. We are going to use dance as a tool for mediating and distancing this violence. It is also an expression tool in order to give a voice to the uncivil violence born from the lack of a public space to speak out. The dance, like the dramatization of behavior, highlights the tensions and contradictions of the community.
It can also be an instrument for understanding what is said through its violent manifestations. We want to develop intercultural dialogue, mutual knowledge, tolerance, mutual respect, solidarity of young people from different countries and backgrounds by bringing them to participate in a collective project implementing their creative capacities. This project will allow us to better anticipate the causes of violence and we will work on it with young people from sensitive neighborhoods of Montélimar, stigmatized because of its high rate of acts of violence.
This event will bring together 30 participants from France, Germany, Estonia, Romania, Italy, Slovakia. The event will be held in English. There are 5 vacancies available. The participant should have between 18 until 25 years old.
The Erasmus + Programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse 100% of the travel costs for the participants – up to 275 euros. There will be a participation fee of 40 Eur. per participant.
All the interested people should fill the application form below.
