The next step in our project is to meet together with youth workers for a training about Live Action Role Playing. Application is ready and we are waiting for answer till june. Keep the fingers crossed. Here is description of our idea:


     The participants of the ‘Land of Imagination’ training course are experienced and highly educated youth workers, who represent organizations from all over Poland, Bulgaria, Greece, Lithuania, Latvia, Turkey, Romania, Italy and Hungary. The main topic of our meeting are the possibilities of implementation an innovatory method in an informal education which is called LARP (Live Action Role Playing Game). The purpose of a training course is to pass on the knowledge how to use LARPs in work with the youth, how to create a professional, international project based on this method and how to connect other methods of an informal education with LARPs effectively. 

The methods of working were selected as a result of our experience from the projects we have run previously. These methods have evolved from theatre games played on live, which were conducted during the last few years as a part of Action 1.1 in Poland and abroad including thematic workshop (pedagogy of theatre, pedagogy of experience, language animation, LARP, fire show, LARP handouts, theatre make-up, scenography), the layout- what’s LARP, Youth in Action, YouthPass), Discussion, Trip, City Game, Flash Mob, Happening.

The project will result in better and more intensive cooperation with other organizations, which have already started co-working with us by promoting LARPs in Europe ( Bulgaria, Hungary, Lithuania). Our aim is also to build and strengthen cooperation with the other partners in this area. Accordnig to that, we will spread the actions our organization started three years ago as a part of Action 1.1 projects.

By taking part in this project, the organizations will improve their tool potential in working with the youth due to a innovatory method. Moreover, the training course will effect in higher quality level of the projects. The youth connected with our partner organizations will be trained and will join the administration team of our website created during the Action 1.1 project (Imaginaryrealms.org) and will prepare their own projects based on LARPs.
