LISTEN in Athens

In early September 2018 the LISTEN partners met in Athens, centre of antique culture, representing stories from millenia and inhabitants from all cultures.

During the two days we intensively worked on shaping our products, to make sure they have an impact for the people who will use it.

The LISTEN approach introduces storytelling into intercultural education for refugees, and connects this endeavour with deliberate reflection on learning, but also seeks ways to make ones storytelling skills known through audio broadcasting media like the radio, fostering mutual understanding that evolves from sharing stories.

This way LISTEN  makes a contribution to support intercultural understanding and the inclusion of refugees into European societies.

The materials will be created during autumn and tested with professionals from the field during the LISTEN training course in Innsbruck, Austria in January 2018.

First Newsletter released

LISTEN has started and our first step was to find out, what we need to know, in order to develop materials that are tailored to our beneficiaries’ needs.

For this purpose we have created an online survey that addresses educators working with refugees and/or storytelling and asks about their experiences and practices.
