PEACE – Power Exchange through Acting interCultural Experience
The main goal of the project is to contribute to the understanding of
cultural differences in European countries (with a special focus on
Eastern European countries), especially on non-verbal communication,
and remove communication barriers in direct intercultural interaction.
This interaction will take place in workshops where intercultural
differences can be explored, discussed and solutions for conflicts and misunderstandings can be developed.
The main resource in our project for gathering information about the
different cultures is the historic archetypal knowledge we find in fairytales,
myths, legends and sagas of the respective countries.
Begin of the project: September 2006

reinsertion in the community. Our project seeks the creation of
“ Educational Spaces” inside prisons, where formal, vocational and non-formal activities can be undertaken and developed.
Begin of the project: September 2006
