Shared Spaces: Co- creating inclusive enviroments for migrants and local communities

Shared Spaces recognizes the challenges that young migrants face when trying to integrate themselves into the host society and the critical role community-based organizations play in promoting youth participation and commitment to local activities. The project aims to bring solutions and support to fostering a sense of belonging among youth from diverse backgrounds in the local community through activities and events.

The initial phase of our project was dedicated to comprehensive research aimed at understanding the complexities of the issues and the specific needs of our target groups. This involved conducting focus groups with young migrants and educators, distributing surveys to gather insights from young people, and interviewing youth workers aligned with our project’s objectives.

The enchanting campsite "Tabor pod Krzywą" in the Polish Sokoliki mountains, hosted a 4-day outdoor event titled "Embrace, Explore, Evolve." Our mornings began with serene meditation sessions and invigorating exercises. Throughout the day, we embarked on exhilarating hikes, delved into the world of rock climbing, collaborated on preparing dinners, and concluded our evenings with warm conversations and melodious singing around the fire under the starlit sky. The event offered participants a precious opportunity to disconnect from urban life, unwind amidst nature's embrace, introspect in solitude, and forge new companionships.

“Post Truth? Countering disinformation narratives”. Poznan, Poland, 2023.

"Post Truth? Countering Disinformation Narratives" focuses on the growing problem of disinformation and fake news in the post truth era and how it could be countered through critical thinking, media literacy and other creative strategies.

During 9 days, 7 selected artists explored the topic of post truth from different perspectives, focusing on the growing problem of disinformation and fake news and how it could be countered through critical thinking, media literacy and other artistic strategies. This collaborative hybrid program combined a transdisciplinary training approach to post truth together with a collaborative residency finalising in a presentation as collective exhibition in the Galeria u Jezuitów Centrum Integracji Kulturalnej.

The program began in project space Patria (Skrzetuszwo) where participants lived together while learning about the topic. We would like to thanks all the invited researchers from different disciplines who sparked questions to reflect and build from: Mykhailo Koltsov, Bogdan Bondarchuk, Alessandro Rolandi and Txaro Arrazola.

The program continued with some experiential activities including the field trip to the museum Centrum Edukacji Regionalnej Kasztelanii Ostrowskiej where participant artists had the opportunity to respond to the island contained in this space with some ephemeral artistic interventions. This place holds important archeological finds that were preserved in the water of this lake telling us the story today.

The collaborative process enabled ideas to be materialised in the final presentation creating a multidisciplinary exhibition in the Galeria u Jezuitów Centrum Integracji Kulturalnej.

This process was led by the artist and curator Seila Fernández Arconada who designed and delivered the program together with the local coordinator Taisiia Shkarlinska from Logos Poland who took care of all logistics to make the project flow nicely with the best atmosphere for the participant artists.

This project has been organized by Lernlabor in partnership with Logos Poland and financed by the @auswaertigesamt and #civilsocietycooperation

Climb into Youth Work. Andalusia, Spain, 2023.

The "Climb into Youth Work" training course took place in Andalusia, Spain, in March 2023.

Training was organised by Logos and Lernlabor organizations with the support of Rocio Monteoliva Herrera and local partners, the Andalusian Mountain Federation (Federación Andaluza de Deportes de Montaña).

Participants had the opportunity to explore the beautiful climbing sectors in the western Sierra Nevada, meet local mountain guides and pioneers of the Andalusian climbing scene, and enhance their skills in organizing climbing activities for groups with mixed abilities. Additionally, they developed follow-up projects with local stakeholders.

Throughout the project, participants engaged in top-rope climbing and lead-climbing workshops, learned how to set up and clean anchor points, and practiced setting up multi-pitch belay stations and abseiling. They also received training in risk assessment, giving and receiving feedback, and utilizing non-formal approaches to achieve learning outcomes. Workshops on funding and project development were also provided.

A highlight of the project was the inter-generational climbing day, where participants had the opportunity to climb with Andalusian climbing pioneers and meet Javier Aguilar, the world record holder in blind lead climbing. We are grateful to our participants, Rocio Monteoliva Herrera, our hosts, and our funders JUGEND für Europa for making this project possible.

This project was funded by the European Union.

Power and Solidarity. Ceuta, Spain, 2023.

The "Power and Solidarity" training course took place in Ceuta, Spain, in March 2023.

Youth workers from nine different countries, including Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, and Spain, gathered in for the "Power and Solidarity" training course, which was fully funded by Erasmus+ programme.

The participants engaged in non-formal education workshops to acquire essential skills, such as setting SMART goals, conducting SWOT analysis, managing risks, resolving conflicts, and scaling up projects. Through their newfound knowledge, they collaborated in international teams to generate innovative ideas for Solidarity projects. Participants also gained familiarity with the European Youth Portal and created six application forms that have the potential to receive grants and create positive change in their local communities.

Unbox inclusion. Poland, Poznan, 2022.

“Unbox Inclusion” was a training course hosted and implemented by Logos. It happened from 28 of November to 6 of December in Poznan, Poland.

During the 9 inspiring days we managed to learn more about minorities and human rights in general, as well as build our own Escape Boxes! But, let’s start from the beginning..

On the first intense, but exciting day we got to know each other better, introduced the schedule of the next days and learned more about Logos. Then, we had a full day dedicated to human rights and minorities, which was highlighted by the visit to “Niewidzialna Ulica”, a social enterprise that is showing the life of people with visual disabilities. The next day we visited escape rooms and played escape boxes to understand the mechanics of the game and get some inspiration for the next, busy days. The last days were devoted to the theory of Escape boxes, and building our own games.

Needless to say, we managed to create 4 escape boxes, which we tested and presented at our open event, which was visited by more than 50 people!

Escape box №1.

Topic: Sexual Minorities

Name of the room: Adam is missing

Short description: The box aims to raise awareness about the dangers people from LGBTQI+ minority face and make people more empathic. The box is telling a story of Adam- a boy who decided to leave the country because of the discrimination he faced. While playing the box you will see what problems he faced, and learn more about the situation in different countries.

Escape box №2.

Topic: Ethnic Minority, Financial Literacy

Name of the room: Testament

Short description: So many of us don’t know how to deal with money, so though the game the players will develop financial literacy skills– basics how to handle money in a reasonable way. It is important to make people aware of their financial situation and to make them start to think about their money. All of this, while learning the story of a Roma family struggling with their financial situation!

Escape box №3.

Topic: Disabilities

Name of the room: Mission Impossible

Short description: In our daily life we don’t think about the life of people with disabilities, but we certainly should! This box is aiming to raise awareness of the difficulties that people with disabilities have in their daily lives. During the game you will have to use all the senses to solve the puzzles, just like a person with disabilities that lacks one of them have to compensate with others in their daily lives. 

Link to the toolbox: Mission impossible

Escape box №4.

Topic: Domestic Violence

Name of the room: Bad Boy

Short description: Many tragedies go unnoticed and we tend to judge people without knowing their story. Through the game we want to raise awareness about domestic violence and familiarise the international sign of domestic violence. The box aims to start a discussion on how we can solve the problems and show that these things are happening in real life

*With the help of the toolboxes, you can fully reconstruct the escape room and spread the knowledge of human rights in your hometown.

 

Special thanks we want to say to our great partners: 

21 NAP EGYESÜLET, BRNO FOR YOU, Z.S, SYTEV,

And also Visegrad Fund for the funding and support of this Training Course.

 

Thank all of you!
