Dance workshops Polin Rokedet

Dance workshops Polin Rokedet showed me that at any age you can learn something new, especially something so different from everyday life in which we live. They were for me as a window through which I could look at another world: the world of imagination and art, beautiful music, which was combined with dance triggers, wonderful emotions and spiritual experiences. I could not only admire others as customary admires artists on stage, but most of all I was involved by myself in the creation of a dance performance. Dance allows to have a different look at each yourself, learn an acceptance of self, own body, which is “running” to “higher purpose”. Our profiles become graceful, moving to the rhythm of enchanting melodies and our legs “same tore up” to dance. Large selection of melodies and dances gave the chance to find something suitable for every person, but in fact they were all charming and sank a lasting memory. Well, what did I remember from the workshops? Great atmosphere created by the organizers and the Israeli dance teachers, who together created the offbeat, thrilling and magical world. World where you want to go back next year and even more quickly to experience it again with the other participants, which we met. A magnet of this place were also exceptional people, enthusiasts coming from various parts of Poland and the whole world, with whom joined us dancing. We felt like in a real community, where we have created a single common language understandable to all of us: body language. It was worth it to experience it all even for a few moments!

Closer to each other. Education and dialogue in a culturally composite group

Closer to each other. Education and dialogue in a culturally composite groupWe are presenting to a reader book Closer to each other. Education and dialogue in a culturally composite group. The book includes articles prepared within the framework of the “Leadership Program” – Seminars for Israeli Educators in Poland” and have been presented at the conference “Closer to each other. Education and Dialogue in a culturally Composite Group” that took place on 9th November 2015 as well as during the substantive preparatory meetings. Authors of the articles presented the issue of cultural diversity from their own research perspective. They reveal the complexity of intercultural dialogue and its numerous entanglements- ideological, political and educational contexts. Articles form a coherent narrative are showing the need to build a “living bridges” between nations, societies and generations. In terms of content articles include three problem groups. The first group takes into account the theory and practice in intercultural education, the second – teaching a common Polish-Jewish history and its implications for the current Polish-Israeli relations and, finally, the third describes the educational innovations occurring in Poland and Israel. The book is complemented with selected reflections of participants – the students of partner universities participating in the project and enriched by photo-relation from the project activities. The most important field of analysis been done is an intercultural education. This is the term for both educational activities aimed at raising awareness on the problems of minorities settling in countries with a higher standard of living than their country of origin, as well as the problems of vanishing cultures, opportunities and barriers to the creation of societies open to cultural difference. It was therefore concluded that we should speak about interculturality not only in relation to societies accepting immigrants.
