European Network Remembrance and Solidarity Die Motte Foundation

Edition 2018: Warsaw

Sound in the Silence 2018

If you have a real passion for teaching and want to be a part of an international project combining history and art, we invite you to apply to the Sound in the Silence project. We are looking for committed high school teachers from EU countries to take part with their students in an intercultural and interdisciplinary remembrance project.

Sound in the Silence is a way to find a new way of looking at the history of Europe, of our nations, states, regions and of transferring the past into our present lives. During Sound in the Silence, young people can express their feelings on history through music, dance, acting or creative writing and teachers can extend their knowledge about non formals activities, working methods and tools that they will be able to use in the classrooms.

Each edition revolves around a specific location and its history in the 20th century. Last year participants visited former Concentration Camp Ravensbrück, in Germany. This year 4 selected groups from 4 European countries will spend 9 days, between 23 September and 2 October, visiting Warsaw, Poland, to explore the history of the two Warsaw uprisings – Warsaw Ghetto uprising of 1943 and Warsaw Uprising of 1944. They will learn about their history, with a special attention given to the forms of resistance.

While your students will take part in historical and art workshops, you will be able to discuss the possibilities of non-formal education with other teachers.

Organiser cover all costs.

Do you want to take part in Sound in the Silence 2018?
