Erasmus+ Training Course for youth workers in Szeged, Hungary (01/11/2016 -08/11/2016).
Project implemented by Eurotender Association (Hungary) in partnership with Fundacja "Zielony Słoń".
DixIt (from Latin dico, dicere) means "s/he said, told". Nowadays, Dixit is also a well-known game, based on storytelling, creative associations, and first of all on empathy and on introspection to the Others thoughts, feelings. Hundreds of people like to play Dixit, but we often use it in the youth work as a tool for different activities, besides the "origial card" more and more people create his/her own Dixit cards.
Every time when two people meet - there is a chance for intercultural learning. We believe if we take this learning into a deeper level and make the participants awareness for their own feelings, thoughts, preconceptions, and empathy for each other to grow, they will be able to see the possibility for deeper understanding. We would like to implement the "continuation" of our previous project, with the same approach of intercultality. The aim of the project titled "DixIt Yourself!" is supporting the intercultural approach in youth work, involving partners from European countries by enhancing the quality and acceptance of youth workers’ and other professionals’ work.
The project is based on the ideas, results of our tandem training course „Mentor(ed) – aspects of intercultural partnerships” (2015-2-HU02-KA105-000989), implemented by Eurotender in 2015.
There is no participation fee! Food, accommodation and local travel costs (only during the activity program) will be covered 100% by the grant from the Hungarian National Agency of Erasmus+. Travel costs reimbursement limit for Polish participants is 275 euro.
