Simulation games are one of the most powerful type of tools that can help to raise better understanding on how it is to be “in other peoples’ shoes” and experience situations that we are not that familiar with.
They can be very valuable tool also to increase awareness about different societal issues, develop empathy and thus alter peoples’ behaviors and promote VALUES. Even if they seem “like a game” for some people who are not well aware, they reflect well the deeply rooted patterns of behavior and prejudices that we have.
Designing and facilitating simulation games is quite complicated and requires many skills, therefore these tools are not that widely used in youth work and educational context.
The general idea of this project is to explore deeper simulation games as an effective tool for promoting such values as inclusion, respect for diversity, understanding, equality and active participation among the young people and include more simulation games in regular youth work at the local level.
Kultur & Art Initiative e.V. was established 17 years ago and it is an intercultural and intergenerational non-profit organisation composed of members from different nations, age groups with different professional backgrounds who have got professional experiences in youth, refugees, migration, non-formal education and media production for many years.
Kultur & Art Initiative e.V. develops and implements intercultural projects.
Our aim is to realize projects with people of different ethnic origins. Our concept is based on contents of social and intercultural integration. We want to work against passive cultural consumption by using active cultural work.
This is why we offer creative and project-orientated opportunities to our participants in addition to media educational workshops and international youth exchanges. In this context we organise “Erasmus+” projects and we work in the fields of youth policy and youth work development.
Since our establishment, Kultur und Art Initiative e.V. implemented many projects in the framework of the Youth in Action Programme, Erasmus+ and many different EU projects like Promotion of the Civil Society Dialogue Between EU and Turkey, Civil Society Facility EU- Turkey Intercultural Dialogue Culture and Arts (ICD-CA) or Youth Initiatives for Dialogue.
