Decision Making and Self Reprocessing Exchange
February 3rd-9th 2020, Logroño, Spain
For one week of February, four senior members of Kildare Youth Theatre traveled to northern Spain to learn decision making and mindfulness skills. Under the context of bringing these skills to both the stage and workshops, our team worked alongside like-minded individuals from Bulgaria, Italy, Greece and of course Spain.
From day one, the project involved intense group work, touching on ideas such as Howard Gardner's '7 Intelligences' and the '6 Thinking Hats' for effective communication.
The project was a blend of discussion and practical work, evolving meaningful conversations into short devised pieces which harbored the emotions felt by the groups.
"The inner gang and inner conflict [ideas] were touched on many times, which was a very emotional experience for most of the participants and really brought the groups closer" - Irish female.
