Selected Participants for a Youth Workers' Training on GRAPHIC FACILITATION SKILLS in 19-26.02.2022

Updated: Feb 13, 2023

Selected Participants for the Training Course:

Thinking and Sharing with Images for Intercultural and Mutual Understanding February 2023 Gyöngyös, Hungary



We are very proud to announce the final selected participants out of 35 candidates that expressed an interest applying the relevant application for the TC that MOSTart Association organized focusing in creative thinking and mind mapping via digital skills. The objective of this TC is to ease communication among youth workers and youngsters from

different cultures, to reduce the probability of misunderstandings and conflicts during daily

working processes and to build a higher level of awareness and understanding when working

in an intercultural environment through acquiring graphic facilitation skills. Graphic facilitation

supports deep dialogue and encourage constructive action by participants representing a

considerable diversity of cultures, languages, and traditions of faith. Graphic work moves

beyond recording “call out” statements from participants to more nuanced, reflective, and

participatory representations of large and small group dynamics. It contributes significantly to

participant engagement and sustainability of the learning outcomes. The general objective of TC is to increase the quality of the methodological tools available to youth workers and their organizations, who work with young people in multicultural contexts, with ethnic or migration background and lack of cultural, social and educational resources, through the knowledge and practice of bases of sketch-noting and visual facilitation. This training is aimed at those who wish to use the potential of visual real-time documentation in training courses, process monitoring, or coaching in youth work.
