I.You.We — Intercultural Improv Workshop

I.You.We — Intercultural Improv Workshop

Increasingly often (and more clearly), we come to a realization that it is simply impossible to anticipate all potential events. The sooner we understand that readiness for change is as important as planning, the sooner we can develop 21st-century skills and competencies. With this in mind, the SWPS University’s Department of Graphic Design in Wrocław would like to invite students to participate in the “I.You.We” intercultural workshop held in Oerlinghausen, Germany.

20-26 February, 2023
Oerlinghausen, Germany

Scenario for change

Spontaneity, cooperation, flexibility — these, and many more, are the components of theatrical improvisation. During our workshop, the participants will explore this form of performance through various exercises.

In beautiful surroundings, ideal for active relaxation, we will learn from, with, and about each other. We will create an open and safe space promoting an exchange of views and ideas and diversity to encourage experimentation with sound, movement, space, and stage props. The main themes of our creative explorations will include identity, roles, and self-expression.

The workshop will culminate in an original performance piece — the result of several days’ work.

Join us for an

  • intercultural
  • improvisational
  • inclusive
  • innovative

integration meeting.

Who should attend?

We invite young and curious adults under 26 years of age living in Poland or Germany, in particular those eager to work in an intercultural team, ready to step out of their comfort zone and explore their individual and group potential.

The application deadline is February 10, 2023. The number of participants is limited. Apply now

Cost: EUR 100 (including accommodation, food, and the workshop) and travel costs. Travel costs will be reimbursed up to PLN 300-400 (approximately EUR 63-85).

The workshop is co-financed by the German-Polish Youth Office (GPYO) and Lübbecke Rotary Club.

Creative workshop topics

We all desperately pine to be . . . something more than just a name.

fragment of a book Radio Armagedon by Jakub Żulczyk
  1. I.You.We — (my) Self

    Everyone’s Self is complex. It develops with us. It changes along with the expectations and challenges the world has in store for us. Fast or slow, radically or moderately, consciously or unconsciously. In search of one’s Self, we constantly waver between its various concepts. Finding and defining oneself is an experimental process of constructing, negotiating, and trying things out.

    • Who am I (who I am not)?
    • How do I think, feel, and act?
    • Who/what shapes me and how?
    • What makes me, me?
    • How do I express myself?
    • And what are all these questions for anyway?
  2. I.You.We — without you, there is no me

    The complexity of the Self intersects with the multidimensionality of identity. The identity is made up of self-awareness and an individual’s/group’s self-concept derived from its perceived place in the social construct of the world. The Social Self is formed by the individual’s/group’s self-image and its perception by others.

    • How do I perceive myself, and how do others see me?
    • How can I unlock my potential?
    • How can I show my Self?
    • How to communicate (using body language) to be noticed, heard, and understood?
  3. I.You.We — in the theater of everyday life

    The metaphor of theater created by a Canadian-American sociologist, Erving Goffman, subversively points out that our performances (self-presentation and social interaction) — unlike in theater — can sometimes be unconscious and unintentional.

    • How can I prepare for such performances?
    • What roles suit me best?
    • How do I play these roles?
    • How do they affect the audience/society?
