The aim of this project is to explore the positive aspects of European cultural diversity and how it can be
promoted through intercultural learning. It will provide participants with competencies in using two innovative methods of studying cultural diversity – music and storytelling.
Music and the art of telling stories are the only universal language promoting reading, creativity,
comprehension and a mean through which our cultures can be translated to the others (who do not speak
the same language as us). With this project we want to address all of these issues directly, promoting music
and storytelling not only as tools but also as means of intercultural learning. The project idea came directly
from young people who, upon their experiences in participation in international projects abroad, reflected on the importance of national stories and of the music, and a surprising lack of its conscious use of both of them as educational tools when studying about cultural diversity and intercultural learning. The project combines the ‘old’ with the ‘new’. Whereas storytelling is one of the oldest (and unfortunately forgotten) methods of exploring diversity (fortunately still very much present in the UK!) music always seems to remain to be the area of expertise of young people. The project will therefore address both sets of tools exploring their varieties as well as empowering participants to be their educational ambassadors.
The course focuses on the role music plays in cultural diversity. The course is an educational journey
through music styles and methods of communication with young people coming from different ethnic,
national and cultural backgrounds through music, aiming at equipping participants with competences in
intercultural communication. The programme of the course is based on non-formal exploratory methods
including various modes of play and improvisation. We will be learning simple but profound pieces of World Music engaging participants through songs, rounds, rhythm-pieces and games. The programme will be lead jointly by Adrian Locher, ASHA’s Artistic Director, actor, voice coach and director and Gregers Brinch, composer/singer/director and teacher. The course will facilitate an unfolding of aspects of creativity that can strengthen participants’ intercultural skills such as working together in multicultural groups, creativity and entrepreneurship, practicing leadership and problem-solving.
