Get awarded and win precious prizes. The LISTEN Award is a competition that aims to promote intercultural storytelling with refugees and migrants. The LISTEN project is looking for stories – fictional or real ones – told by refugees and migrants. The story can be a memory, a self-created story, a fairytale, legend or myth. The idea of LISTEN is that stories can build bridges between refugees and migrants and their receiving societies. These stories give migrants and refugees a voice and raise the awareness for their perspectives, wishes, visions, challenges and problems. By using intercultural storytelling the LISTEN project aims to support the integration of refugees and migrants in their receiving societies.
The Award will celebrate educational practices from all over Europe that can demonstrate the use of creative and inclusive learning methods with outstanding results and the potential to be replicated and/or of inspiring others. The Award is not limited to a particular sector; lifelong learning covers education and training across all ages and in all areas of life be it formal, non-formal or informal.
