  • Graphic facilitation

Target group: Professionals or volunteers in the field of formal and non-formal education, youth, social and community development.

Graphic facilitation techniques (also known as visual facilitation) make facilitation more fluid, support and strengthen the transmission of content and information and allow the representation of various elements in a more stimulating and impactful way. This training provides an introduction to the techniques and tools of graphic facilitation, allowing the design and creation of graphic and simple documents and the translation of complex content into visual language. The training will also question the issue of representations and symbols, allowing a reflection on stereotypes and what we communicate and reproduce non-verbally in our daily practices ...

  • Participatory podcasts

Target group: Young people.

 

Using radio podcasting as a tool, we’ll work around themes of social relevance (interculturality, racism, gender, etc) through non-formal and participatory methodologies. The exploration of the contents will lead to the creation of audio contents which can then be disseminated locally, resulting in podcasts on the different themes dealt with.

  • Workshop: Ephemeral Museum of Memory

Target groups: diverse groups, intergenerational groups.

 

Aim: To interweave personal stories and collective memory.

Each person brings an object, ordinary or extraordinary, personal or familiar, from which they can tell a story and share a little of their identity. Through games and participative activities, it is a moment of intercultural and intergenerational conversation.

  • Translation and Interpreting

For events and documents, we offer customised language services with various combinations of the following languages: Portuguese, German, English, French, Spanish.
