Erasmus meeting in Malbork, March 2018

Halftime of the project “Flight and migration – problem or chance”

The third time the Erasmus coordinators met each other to talk about the project, the results, and difficulties. In March 2018 the Lyceum 2 of Malbork hosted Hassan and Sunnay from Izmir (Turkey) and Johannes and Kirsten from Nordhorn (Germany).

In the meantime, the students of the three involved schools participated in two workshops in 2017 and two other workshops will take place in 2018. The intended fifth workshop is canceled because of the resignation of the Dutch school of Gouda. The seven Erasmus teacher (from Poland: Derek, Asia, and Anna) reorganized the content of the canceled workshop. So the projected traveling exhibition will be modified in three exhibitions curated together and presented at the same time (February 2019).

In June 2018 the students from Izmir and Nordhorn will travel to Malbork. Together with the Poland students,  they will learn how to deal with the statistic data. Certainly, they will visit the interesting castle of Malbork and Gdansk, the old Hanseatic City on the Baltic Sea. In Malbork, they will curate a part of the exhibition.

The last workshop will take part in October 2018. In Nordhorn the students will present the topic on stage. Again they will take photos and make a video which are another part of the final exhibition.

The seven Erasmus teachers were invited by different members of the town and the county of Malbork. The Mavor and the Deputy Starost talked with the team about the topic of the project. They underlined the importance of these international meetings of the youth.
