TC “Theatre of the giraffe” – Poland

Type of project: Training Course funded by the European programme Erasmus+
Dates: 21st-30th September 2018
Place: “Wytwórnia Ciszy”, Uniejów, Poland
Hosting organisation: KobieTY
Involved countries: Poland, Italy, Germany, Spain, France, Estonia, Portugal, Bulgaria, Romania, Lithuania, Slovenia, Macedonia
Participants’ age and profile: 18+ – this training is for you if:

✔ you work with other people – as your target group and/or as your partners and
professional colleagues
✔ you have experienced conflict situations between people, and you would like to explore
how to react in those situations in a nonviolent way, still being able to fully express
yourself – from the perspective of a supporter/ mediator or yourself being involved
✔ you are open to try different methods connected with body, voice, nature, drama to
reflect on your needs, emotions, and the communication process


This project anticipates developing competences of youth workers to communicate in a
nonviolent way – acknowledging own and others’ needs, recognising and expressing emotions,
building peaceful relations with young people, and co-workers. We found an existing need
among trainers, facilitators, youth leaders, and project coordinators to approach situations of
conflict and misunderstanding in their work environment with a fresh perspective. Especially
working with multinational and cross-cultural groups, youth at risk, migrants and refugees,
where backgrounds, contexts and understandings might be so different, and may lead to
frustrations in the communication process.
