GaMYTHication| Youth Exchange

Call for 4 Italian residents aged 20-27 + 1 group leader (no age limit)


🇬🇧 About the project


GAMYTHICATION IS A YOUTH EXCHANGE INSPIRED BY GAMES AND MYTHOLOGY, USED AS VEHICLES FOR A JOURNEY TOWARDS THE INNER SELF CONSCIOUSNESS. EVERY STORY, EVERY BOOK, EVERY MOVIE, EVERY THEATRE PLAY, IS AN ATTEMPT TO CAPTURE OR TO RECREATE THE EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCE AND THE INTENSITY OF INVOLVEMENT THAT YOU HAVE WHEN SOMEONE TELLS YOU THE STORY OF SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED OR COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO THEM.

USING STORYTELLING TECHNIQUES, SHAPING NARRATIVES AND UTILIZING THE POWER OF GAMIFICATION PRINCIPLES WE WILL CREATE NEW STORIES AND LEARN HOW TO PRESENT THEM TO AN AUDIENCE. WE WILL ENGAGE IN BOTH INDOOR AND OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES FROM NATURE HIKES IN SEARCH OF INSPIRATION TO DESIGNING AND TESTING OUR OWN ESCAPE ROOM EXPERIENCES. WE WILL ALSO SHARE VARIOUS LOCAL MYTHS AND STORIES FROM OUR COUNTRIES OF ORIGIN, PASSED DOWN THROUGH GENERATIONS TO FIND THE COMMON THINGS THAT INSPIRE AND MOVE US AS HUMAN BEINGS.


The Project Aims to:


  • INTRODUCE THE BASICS OF STORYTELLING THROUGH THE PRISM OF THE HERO’S JOURNEY PARADIGM

  • INTRODUCE BASIC GAME DESIGN & GAMIFICATION PRINCIPLES

  • ENCOURAGE YOU TO DRAW INSPIRATION FROM EVERYDAY THINGS SO THEY CAN TAP INTO THEIR CREATIVE RESERVES

  • DEVELOP KNOWLEDGE ABOUT EUROPEAN CULTURAL HERITAGE, MYTHOLOGY AND FOLKLORE

  • DEVELOP ARTISTIC ABILITIES VIA ROLE PLAYING (MYTHOLOGICAL LARP, CREATION OF THEMATIC ESCAPE ROOM)

  • ENCOURAGE TO REFLECT AND BECOME MORE SELF AWARE

  • CREATE AND SHARE A COMPENDIUM OF NEW ORIGINAL FICTIONAL STORIES MADE BY PARTICIPANTS

  • UTILIZE MUSIC AS A TOOL FOR EXPANDING THE LIMITS OF PARTICIPANTS’ CREATIVITY

Participants will:

  • DEVELOP CREATIVITY AND STORYTELLING SKILLS

  • BECOME MORE OPEN TO OTHER CULTURES;

  • EXPERIENCE TRAVELLING (FOR THOSE WHO ARE TRAVELLING FOR THE FIRST TIME);

  • DEVELOP PLANNING AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT SKILLS;

  • BOOST SELF-ESTEEM;

  • UNDERSTAND WHETHER REFLECTION IS EFFECTIVE FOR THEM;

  • BE GIVEN TIME TO FIND INSPIRATION FOR CREATIVITY WORK;
