A Clown’s Mind

ERASMUS+ from inside out

 

After so many years of organising ERASMUS+ projects (see https://www.aiforia.eu/projects, it was finally time for us to get involved as participants as well! The opportunity occurred with the ERASMUS+ training course “A Clown’s Mind” which was organised by Terre de Nuages / France (https://www.terredenuages.fr/) and Teatro Invisibile / Italy (https://www.teatroinvisibile.it ) in May 2024, and Andrea was amongst the participants selected for this vocational training. It was aimed at developing the skills and confidence of for youth workers necessary to create safe, inclusive, and enjoyable learning environments for young people, building trust and rapport, and facilitate positive change in an entertaining and engaging manner. At the core was the discovery of our own “Clown’s mind,” an attitude of being, way before acting and doing, lightly in balance in the presence.
Thus the trainers Antonio, Claire, Flore and Gemma were incorporating clowning, movement, and mindfulness practices into the schedule,
employing diverse approaches and modalities, as methods for enhancing the social and emotional skills and abilities of youth workers. Over 10 days, 21 participants from 7 European countries embraced the opportunities, but also challenges that came with this intensive
approach. And the location at eco-village Oasis des Ages (https://oasisdesages.fr/ ) in rural France just made the experience
perfect, giving an authentic feel of community living, sharing and caring. An additional treasure for our work in sustainability projects!
