Storytelling - a new approach for empowerment of persons under risk of exclusion
Significant changes in modern European society are on the hike. Facing challenges within the scope of its multiculturalism, diversity and social inequity brings along different regulations, strategies, plans and measure towards creating equal opportunities and quality of life for all. The changes and raising diversity of population in Europe demands and calls for new approaches – storytelling proved itself as one of the most effective approaches when dealing with these challenges and has a long tradition mostly in northern European countries. Having that on mind, the partnership consortium from 6 European countries (OZARA d.o.o. from Slovenia, BBRZ Österreich from Austria, Ceres Europe (NI) Ltd UK Northern Ireland, EOLAS S.L. from Spain, Imagine d.o.o. from Slovenia, UNIPOSMS – Università Popolare Nuova Scuola Medica Salernitana from Italy and The Storybag from Netherlands), participating in E+ KA2 project aims to tackle the advances of such approach by developing a storytelling professional training (C-VET).
The E+ project “Empowerment of persons under risk of exclusion through development of storytelling professional training in under-equipped EU countries” with the acronym StoryTeller, is aimed at professionals (educators, mentors, social workers etc.) working with disadvantaged groups to empower them for social integration, active citizenship and creation of their own better future.
