Project description and objectives

The "Forum Dialogue" project aims to create a space for the exchange of thoughts, ideas and experiences. It is implemented in two versions: for young people (13-18 years old) and for children (7-12 years old) and then it is called "Forum Dialog Junior". The main theme of the project and its methodology are selected on the basis of the issues that connect the participants (e.g. fashion, identity). Following the theme, participants work in workshops on similarities and differences that both connect and divide them. In this way a space is created to look at the issue of diversity, which is presented as something very valuable – and something that can be used for development at both personal and professional level.

The meeting lasts from 6 to 7 days and takes place 1-2 times a year. In 2016-2020, workshops were held in the following fields: Capoeira, film, photography, juggling, acrobatics, magic tricks, graffiti, upcycling, creating one's own image and creating clothes.
