The Project

The LISTEN project aims at introducing storytelling approaches and techniques to a radio environment as a binding factor which brings social and personal benefits for refugees. Those techniques will serve to develop in refugee’s and migrant’s personality a construction of personal values, a higher level of self- esteem, and a stronger sense of identity in the community. They could develop for example verbal and communication skills, foreign language skills, improvement of intercultural understanding and social skills and reasoning.

The main activities for the LISTEN project between December 2016 and November 2018 are:

  • Researching on storytelling methods, technical specifications and actors mapping
  • Researching and creating an online survey and interviews to storytellers or related actors to obtain the best results for necessary storytelling competences
  • Developing the training modules for trainers and multipliers by partners
  • Piloting the training course and finalizing the European training modules after the course with the general feedback
  • Providing the final storytelling training modules on the web portal in all partner languages
  • Validating the storytelling competences and skills of both trainers and multipliers as well as for refugees or migrants who experienced involuntary or forced migration by means of the well proven validation system LEVEL5
  • Creating an audio book of collection of refugees and migrants life stories and presenting the stories during radio programmes
  • Giving up-to-date information about the project, events and training modules which can be accessed by all interested stakeholders on the LISTEN web portal and spreading the information in other social medias, too
