*FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS*

Workshop 1: Co-creating Art - Youth and the Community 
Lead: Julia Samuels (Co-Artistic Director, 20 Stories High)
"Everybody's got a story to tell...and their own way of telling it."

Award-winning theatre company 20 Stories High have produced some of the UK’s most exciting and respected work for young people. At the heart of these projects is a collaboration between artists and communities. In her practical workshop Julia Samuels – Co-Artistic Director - will introduce and explore the company’s creative principles and processes.

Workshop 2: Making a Connection - Storytelling through objects
Leads: Réka Deák and Husam Abed (Co-Founders, Dafa Puppet Theatre)

Exploring personal history through object-puppets. While we explore and share our personal stories we will search for answers to key questions: how can we begin collecting materials related to memories and childhood, and identify the story behind an object? What kind of relationship is created between the object and the participants? And how can we create intimacy with the audience?

Workshop 3: Engaging Communities - Understanding the Other 
Lead: Hanna Helavuori (Director, Theatre Info Finland)

Our participatory exercises aim at empowering participants of different ages, backgrounds and identities, helping us all become more aware of our thinking about The Other.
Building inclusive art institutions, and also stronger communities in our workplaces, neighbourhoods and countries requires that we first encounter our own blind spots and start listening to each other.

Workshop 4: Finding a Voice - Identity and Expression
Lead: Horváth Kristóf (Founder, Tudás6alom)
“Language is an incapable tool of communication, but we do not have a better one.“ 

Slam poetry is full of stumbling blocks, which can scare people away or seem beyond their abilities. Just like life. Our inner world is mind-blowingly creative, but we are limited by language and our understanding of who ‘art’ is for. This workshop will help identify your unique voice, and show how you can facilitate that process for others. 

PICNIC - Experimenting social circus methods
Lead: Veronika Gallyas

Veronika Gallyas the president of the Hungarian Juggling Association invites the participants to the world of social circus. While enjoying the picnic, she will give an introduction on how social circus activities have developed in Hungary. Afterwards, the active part begins: we can digest the topic - and the lunch too - and get a taste of a social circus session. Bring your good mood and get ready for some more adrenaline and endorphin!
