How did it go?
The training course was delivered by trainers Emir Shevkiiev and Marko Boyko.
At the project our participants built 3 escape rooms and we invited local people to come and play. At the open even we had around 40 guests, who had a chance to learn and play at the same time. Even though we planned to have 3 games per room, we had so many guests that we prolonged and had around 5-6 games played in each room.
The rooms that participants built:
“I COUNT BEAR IT ANYMORE”
A group of longtime friends receive a phone call from Tina, the sister of one of their friends: Angela. Tina lives abroad and she’s worried about Angela because she hasn’t heard from her in a long time, so she asked the group of friends/participants to go to her house to check if they can find her and/or find out what is happening. Angela lives with her boyfriend and she seems to be leading a happy life.
“I want to be a child”
Aleksandra is an eleven years old girl who enjoys going to school and spending time with her friends. Her family is poor and they got an offer to send her away from her country to marry an older man. They accepted the offer without talking to Aleksandra first. Two weeks before the wedding she stopped going to school. Daniela is her neighbor and best friend and she tried to go to her house but Aleksandra’s parents always tell her off. Daniela, her classmate, went to the police because she was worried. They told her they can’t do anything until they have evidence. She decided to contact her classmates to help her find the evidence in Aleksandra’s house.
