Project report:

All I want for Christmas is spending time in wonderful Estonia with Storytelling. Me and Radka came to Roosta, nice camp near Haapsalu on the 2nd December. We joined to Erasmus+ project named The Power of Storytelling that ended on the 10th December. There were 23 people from Czech republic, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Lithuania, Estonia, Greece, Romania, Hungary, France and Slovenia.

In the beginning we got know each other through warm-ups and ice-breakers. We got know with nature around us. And after we can use our new friendship to learn something new. 

Every day was a different tool and method how to use a Storytelling. First day we started with definition of Storytelling and its practice. We continued with Storytelling and writing and half of day we prepared our public speech. We tried to explore experimental Storytelling through LARP (Live Action Role Play). The big landmark was The Heroe´s journey. We spent a lot of time with myself on the journey outside and after we finished our ritual with magic bonfire. We had time to got know each other more. Because we could share our knowledge and experience through networking. Some activities we did together in small or big groups and sometimes we worked myself.

Every night was voluntary interesting program like dancing, movie night, board games etc. We had two intercultural nights and we cognized new culture trough dancing Spanish dance, drink a traditional drinks or playing quiz about other countries. We had also free afternoon and we spent it in amazing sauna complex. 

We explored wonderful Tallinn and his amazing viewpoints and streets. We met many cultures and different opinions than we have and it was open minded. We got taste of Storytelling tools and methods. 

Thank you for this experience to EYCB to sending me and Thank a lot all of participants, organizators and trainers.
