The W4GEA Youth Exchange was a transformative endeavor for young women, fostering collaboration and amplifying their voices through storytelling.
Beginning with an exploration of rhetorical canons, story and science of storytelling participants honed their communication skills and started picturing their own stories.
They were then introduced to the concept of Human library by Gilda Esposito, Innovation Facilitator, for them to create their own one.
The human library project, a result of collaboration with the ADELE Erasmus+ project, saw these stories come to life on the streets of Nocera Umbra, fostering community engagement.
The journey culminated in a stop-motion* creative lab organised by PRIMANIMA, where the narratives took on a visual dimension. The stories were presented during the Social Hackathon, contributing to a broader social impact.
Throughout the exchange, the participants not only discovered the art of storytelling but also experienced the power of collaboration and community building. The fusion of rhetoric, human library, and stop-motion animation showcased the resilience, creativity, and determination of these young changemakers, leaving an indelible mark on both their personal growth and the streets of Nocera Umbra.
