Emotionography: visual tools for emotional self-development of disadvantaged youth

2023-1-MK01-KA220-YOU-000155649

 



PROJECT DETAILS

The project aims to address three main areas:

IMPROVING QUALITY OF YOUTH WORK: Understanding the emotions of the young people our youth workers help is crucial for them to become effective personal guides. We believe in empowering young people based on their individual needs, abilities, and talents, which can lead to positive changes in society. By enhancing the skills of our youth workers, we hope to see improvements in our communities. This training will also free youth workers from cultural expectations and encourage innovation.

SUPPORTING DIGITAL CHANGES: The project uses digital tools to help transform emotions through the Emotionography interactive book. While readers can choose between digital and traditional photography, we focus on digital methods for sustainability reasons. Digital images and tools will help transform difficult emotions, which aligns with our society’s preference for visual content. Exploring digital technologies will improve youth workers’ online communication skills, content creation abilities, and innovative teaching materials. The project itself will be managed online, except for three face-to-face meetings, which will prepare us for future international collaborations.

PROMOTING INCLUSION AND DIVERSITY: Inclusion and diversity are central to the project, not only in working with disadvantaged youth but also in our organizational values. We prioritize staff training and aim to remove barriers for everyone. This commitment to inclusion and diversity influences every aspect of the project, from our vision to how we execute it. By analyzing the needs of our target groups, we tailor our offerings to promote greater inclusion, diversity, and fairness.

We want to empower disadvantaged youth and convert youth workers in their guides by finding the self and emotional connection through visual art tools usage.

  1. Contribute to the personal development of the most underprivileged young people through sharing the partnership’s best practices in art and creativity
  2. Contribute to creating a more resilient and empowered youth through crafting a self-development Emotionography guide.
  3. Contribute towards more resilient and empowered youth society

 

KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER PHASE:
– A 3-day Participatory Visit in Serbia to showcase best practices in theater and other innovative visual arts for disadvantaged youth work.
– A 3-day Participatory Visit in North Macedonia to share best practices in modern photography tools and skills for disadvantaged youth work.

INTERACTIVE BOOK DEVELOPMENT PHASE:
– Creation and publishing of a self-help Emotionography interactive book and audiobook – an empowering method of self-discovery through rewriting the emotional meaning of past experiences. The interactive book will be developed for both youth seeking life guidance and youth workers aiming to become better guides for them.
– An 8-day Training Course in Spain to provide emotional management training for disadvantaged youth workers and to test the book in real-life conditions.
– Emotionography Workshops

DISSEMINATION PHASE:
– Multiplier Events in each partner country
– Internal Workshops
– Consultation Period

  • Emotionography, a set of tools to understand and harness the power of emotions for self-development and building a new future, will be created. 
  • Youth workers will receive free of charge innovative visual tools training and become Emotionography guides to the disadvantaged youth. 
  • The participants of the project’s activities will improve their self esteem and sense of belonging, knowledge about modern photography and how to create innovative tools involving their final benefactors in the process.

Project Impact brings positive changes to various groups involved.

YOUTH WORKERS will become better guides for disadvantaged youth, learn new emotion management techniques, and gain tools for empowerment. They get free high-quality training and boost their confidence and communication skills. They also learn the power of emotional connection and modern photography to reach more young people effectively. Joining an international network adds to their support and collaboration.

Disadvantaged YOUTH benefit too, as they learn practical ways to manage emotions, take control of their lives, and prepare for the job market. With improved self-esteem and resilience, they feel empowered and connected to the European community.

In terms of PARTNERSHIP, the project stays flexible and global, using eco-friendly methods to collaborate and increase visibility. Creating engaging digital content helps spread the word about their work.

The ORGANIZATIONS involved will manage and share project knowledge, integrating innovative methods like theater and modern photography into their youth work, creating impactful videos and curricula
