Facilitator training in Evora, Portugal November 2017
A training course aiming at discovering how digital storytelling can be used while working with minorities and refugees in the European Union. It gathered 24 youth workers who had a chance to discuss the theory and practice of antidiscrimination and examine how digital storytelling can help fight the stereotypes about young people with diverse cultural background.

Iewa who took part in “Once Upon a Story” in Portugal, 2017 says
“The course was based on the topic of Digital Storytelling and how to use this technique to work with diverse cultural differences, migration, human rights, and creativity. We learned how to implement digital storytelling for intercultural dialogue, how to promote youth work and youth participation, and how to deal with radical behaviour and attitudes. Apart from expanding my knowledge on digital storytelling and video editing, I met amazing people with whom I am still in touch, got to know other NGOs, and established future cooperation networks. The whole team, the participants, and the town of Evora were amazing and I will never forget such a great experience and fun I had in Portugal! My big thanks to the organizing team, Ana, Signe and Kas, and the participants.”
