other intercultural events

national/regional presentation and evenings Kick-off workshop during the first day camp. Home-brought collage elements to the own region, art / architecture and youth culture are mounted on a 1m x 1m board. The teams present their team and their home region in the evening based on their presentation-boards. The second opportunity tp present the own european region and the background of the participants is the "national/regional evening". five national evenings are on the agenda.  The teams from Poland, Ukraine,Georgia, Belarus and Germany are invited to cook for the others refering to the national/regional kitchen - culture. And later in the evening a presentation about the own institute, own study works, art and youth-culture. Very very challenging: a theatre- and dance performance ! Finally a DVD , a concert or a movie. To avoid misunterstandings: a "national evening" is not a touristical advertisement event ! .

KAJA - summer camp 2011: five teams from Belarus, Germany, Lithuania, Russia and Poland presenting their boards

open projects

after they got to know each other, get out their common interests and having visited the camp and the sourounded landscape /lakes, we expect, that the participants will use the chance to develop new project-ideas and create another new workshop-concepts.

workshop- leaders presenting their projects

exhibition posters

One of the evalation - tasks at  home, after the camp till end of septmber 2019 will be the design of 1m x 1m exhition posters , one for each workshop - result = project-proposals . Other posters for the documentation of the meeting process should be added. So we hope for min. 20 poster -designs. After it is in the hands of the hosting partner KAJA - Ino Minsk to organize an exhbition in Braslaw, in co- operation with the national/regional partners like art Academy Minsk. The exhibition should open the chance of a participation process to find out the projects, which could not be realized during the summer 2019 and which should be proposed for the 1:1 - realization in co-operation with professional building-companies, artists, designers. 

theoretical workshops

Creative workshops should be accompanied by mutual informations, media presentations about the theoretical background of workshop-concepts and exemples of "good practise" not only in the homecountries / - regions of the participants, but also in other european countries. Each team should lead one of the workshops, which will be presented in the evenings. First proposal: "procedure for the participation of the civil sector in the design of public space in Eastern and Western Europe"
