Transnational Meeting in Cyprus - Nicosia

The project continues in Cyprus with our partners Hope For Children, who welcomed us for the second transnational meeting.
On this occasion, we invited youth workers working with young migrants to identify and understand their needs and those they have identified with their groups when they run workshops/activities.
The art and dance therapists from The Red Pencil and Cie Essevesse organised discovery workshops and prepared a creative programme and role-playing exercises to identify and discuss these needs.
This stage will enable us to prepare the training that we will be putting in place for anyone working with young migrants and wishing to use creative tools with their groups.
Period of time : 06-09-/02/2024
