Opportunities for funding under Erasmus+ programme
This activity is intended for
- teachers of citizenship to students from age 12 up,
- youth leaders aspiring to touch upon sensitive subjects and
- educators in general.
The ideal participants
would be individuals with a positive attitude to using the creative arts of video and music as a method of learning.
The aim of this training activity is that of imparting knowledge and practical skills in the use of video production and music - and song - both as a vehicles for learning as well as for extra curricular or youth activities. It will engage participants in hands-on activities in order that they can experience the planning and implementation phases of the actions. Participants will look at their own performance with a critical eye ready to improve on every step of the development. This will allow each participant to acquire skills with an open mind to use them as tools within his or her own context.
The topic in discussion is human rights and it will be tackled in what we call the safe approaches to human rights. The programme will explore several avenues through which the educator, trainer or leader can take on a subject like human rights that is often assimilated with controversy. The things is that human rights are spoken about only when they are taken away. This workshop will however help participants become agents for positive talk that does not, however, compromise on facing historical, social, democratic and issues relating to human rights square in the face.
The content will use several points of departure like picture frames of Jan Palach, Dalai Lama and other historical icons in the story of human rights. It will then move to other icons like that have sung human rights or discussed issues through pop music.
