“The creative work we were doing during this workshop reminded me of my childhood. I will do exactly the same things for the groups in my community that we have had an opportunity to do here.”
This was the impression of the Georgian participant regarding the results of the Systematization of Experience workshop as well as that of many other participants.
The second workshop within the framework of the three year-project called Arena: Community Theatre and Public Art was held in Tbilisi from August 20-25. The Project was launched in 2015 and is being implemented by Peace Dialogue NGO with participants from the Russian Federation, Georgia, Armenia, Ukraine, and Azerbaijan. The first meeting where the participants learned about Systematization of Experience was held in May, 2015. The purpose of this most recent meeting was to analyze the results of the lessons learned from the first meeting. The trainers for the workshop were Marina Grasse and Mirella Galbiati from project’s partner organization in Germany OWEN.
One of the intended outcomes of the Arena project will be the creation of a stronger network of civil society representatives and independent artists from the above mentioned countries. In order to prepare for this workshop, the participants were asked to document a project on human rights and peace building that they are presently involved in. The results were analyzed during the workshop using the innovative and creative tools. more»
