Valverde (PV) Italy

About the project:

“Dramaturgy in a Journey” is an opportunity for people who use (or want to use) theatre in Youth Work to go deep into dramaturgy and storytelling, with stories and wishes/dreams of the group they work with. These techniques are very effective and widely used while working with youngsters, but it’s important to know them deeply if we want to carry out quality work with positive effects on young people, local communities, territories, organizations that promote such projects and indirectly on all the persons and institutions that are around us.



  • To improve the level of knowledge on Dramaturgy and Storytelling
  • To contribute to a deep understanding of the specific characteristics of Dramaturgy applied to Social Theatre and to the Youth Work
  • To develop skills in the work and management of quality processes in local and international projects with youngsters
  • To develop practical skills and tecniques useful for a good Dramaturgy and Storytelling work
  • Increase/improve attitudes of cultural and social sensitivity in the field of youth work
  • Introduce the concept of the Hero’s Journey (also through the analysis of some parts of Christopher Vogler’s book) as an important tool for Dramaturgy in the work with young
