Fifteen participants who are staff members of CSOs in the ALF network in Slovenia attended the workshop. They learned about theatre-based techniques for personal development and intercultural communication; they also shared about their work as NGOs and CSOs working for intercultural dialogue and social inclusion.

During the exchange, we produced a short video by Fatouh on theatre-based techniques for brain and memory stimulation. You can watch the video here.
