What makes you feel European? When you read a Spanish novel, when you apply for a job in Finland, when you eat Hungarian langos or French roquefort? And anyway – what is Europe? Maybe it’s an idea rather than a place, or maybe it’s just something you experience every day of your life.
We’re inviting you to our week-long workshop, where about 30 young Europeans will be investigating what Europe means to us. Which books should every European read? Is there such a thing as “European English”? How do young Europeans plan their future? These are some of the questions we’ll be asking – and we’ll be creating some multimedia answers such as videos, photos and a European Dictionary, all of which we are hoping to publish.
The “Do you speak European?” workshop will take place in Berlin, a city which has been shaped by Europe’s turbulent past. It will run from the 15th to the 22nd of December. To apply, you should:
– Be between 18 and 30
– Live in Poland, Spain, Romania, Turkey, Germany or the UK. (If you don’t live in one of these countries but you really want to attend the workshop, contact us. We might be able to make exceptions!)
All expenses will be covered, apart from a fee of 70 euros if you’re coming from Germany and the UK, or 35 euros from other eligible countries. The workshop is sponsored by the EU Youth in Action programme and the Allianz Cultural Foundation. It’s open to everyone, not just E&M people, so tell your friends…
The deadline for applications is the 26th of September.
