Today we started the activities with an energizer called “Do you like your neighbours?” so participants could refresh names of other participants. After the Offical Welcome, we prepared a detailed presentation of the projects to participants underlying the partnership we have among our organizations, the network created and how urban art and music can be useful tools for inclusion.

As the Training is very participatory and participants should be the real protagonist of the learning proces, we asked in advance if some of them wanted to support us and share his/her experience in the field. For this reason, Valentine helped us to introduce the topic of inclusion through dance, mixing together different kinds of dance styles, from hip hop to african dance. Afterwards, all participants had the hance to create their own movements and to develop their own concept of inclusion through dance. During the afternoon, Juanma, a multifaceted artist specialized in Fine Arts, presented us a workshop on art-therapy using music and artistic expression. Doing so, participants could created a more comfortable and more connected relationship to one another, using non-formal tools. At the end of the afternoon, we had a workshop about music tecniques to create a fusion, using both theoretical concepts and practical instruments.
To conclude the first day, we had the intercultural dinner, where participants could share food from their own country and they could know more about different cultures, traditions and customs.
