This workshop is part of a series with the overall objective of increasing the quality of the work done by trainers in the youth field. This is to be achieved through the development of youth trainer´s competences, in particular educational tool experimentation, adaptation, design, and creation; as well as insight enhancement of the participants (the ability to reflect on one´s own practice, be conscious and aware of one´s own youth work practice). Creative writing skills are the focus of this particular workshop and their development will be pursued while exploring the practice, potential, and the limitations of youth work with and about refugees.

The participants of this workshop will also have a chance to apply for the ‘IC Product Jam’, which will be organised in Summer 2018. During the ‘Product Jam’, participants in teams from 3 workshops (creative writing; visuals and comics; games and play) gather and develop tools to be used in youth work with and about refugees where skills from the three workshops will be merged.

All activities of the Insightrainer Creatrainer process will be accompanied by an experienced researcher with the key research question ‘what helps facilitate trainers to gain and implement new skills?’ The research will not only provide a feedback loop throughout the year but also will sharpen the documentation process and support participants’ conscious learning process.

Objectives:

In line with the overall objective, the specific objectives of this Workshop are:

- To become acquainted with how writers prepare to write,
- To gain a theoretical overview of creative writing,
- To practice individual and collective writing,
- To explore the potential of creative writing in youth work,
- To reflect on the transfer of written material to a wider public,
- To increase abilities concerning fact checking,
- To get information and share practices on the work done with, for and about young refugees,
- To reflect on individual learning processes and support the Youthpass process.
