RADIO THEATER TALES OF THE QUARANTINE
About the project
Radio Theater: Tales of the Quarantine (Project Number: 2020-1-ES02-KA227-YOU-016757) is a project funded by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ programme (KA2 Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practices KA227 – Partnerships for Creativity). The project aims to provide new tools to youth workers and social educators which will allow them to improve the skills of young people in terms of creativity, public speaking, group work, body expression, artistic expression, time management, self-knowledge, taking advantage of theater and radio as new creative educational tools. The use of tales through radio and the impact this generates in working with young people are the main theme of the project, supported by the organisation of learning, teaching and training activities with an itinerary composed of 4 trainings, each one related to the production phase of the radio-theater podcasts. The purpose is to improve the skills of young people by promoting their abilities and values and by fostering the learning and development of key competences through the use of digital tools, which are particularly important in the context of social distancing caused by Covid-19. The duration of the project will be 16 months, from 01/06/2021 – 30/09/2022.
The project has three specific objectives:
To create innovative practices in the youth field through the development of a methodology that englobes the techniques of theatre and radio, to acquire key competencies and artistic skills, using digital tools.
To increase and spread innovative methodologies and non-formal education among youth workers and educators, betting on digitalisation and introducing creative solutions.
To promote the organisational development of 5 entities from 4 different countries, with different cultural experiences and backgrounds, strengthening their strategic partnership.
Intellectual Output 1.1: 5 radio-novel consisting of 10 episodes
The consortium will develop 10 radio podcasts that will be designed as episodes of 20 minutes and each will compose a different story. In total, there will be 5 stories, one per partner from Spain, Portugal, Italy and Romania with a duration of 200 minutes. The entire podcasts will be in the language of the organisation with the summaries of the episodes and the description of the characters available also in English. The aim is to promote creativity, public speaking and group work skills, empowering young people with fewer opportunities, in the context of several trainings and local workshops.
Intellectual Output 1.2: Manual
The consortium will develop a manual as a complementary tool to the radio podcasts. The manual will be available in English, Spanish, Italian, Romanian and Portuguese, to make it available in the 5 countries of the partners’ organisation. The aim is to facilitate the youth workers to use the same innovative methodology.
