Soad Ibrahim, dance therapist and trainer working in CESIE, introduced a movement session.

In this workshop each participant has space to express through body language and movement all the process he/she went through during the all project life and its perspectives for the future. At the end of the session we created a common choreography collecting the personal movements that each one expressed during the workshop.

It was a chance to work as a group for a common porpoise and share your feelings through body language.



CESIE staff introduced the Creative thinking method to the Consortium.

According to the method Creative Thinking we can use our creative capacity to be able to dissociate an object from its real use and to make it become many other things…For example recycling materials can become interesting tools to be used to train our creative capacity. This activity can be implemented and adapted in different learning/training contexts (i.e educational institutions/schools, working environments, cultural institutions).

Moreover we introduce the Lateral thinking method using the six thinking hats, a technique that allows to direct the creative process in a structured and collaborative way. This method  allows to find new and creative ideas in different context and eventual solutions.

For more information about the Creative thinking and 6 thinking hats please refer to
