This is the plan...

This project will bring fourteen children from Palestine with two leaders to join a group of the same size from London to learn about each other's lives and cultures and to work together to make short pieces of drama to put themselves in each other's places.

Before the exchange, the children on both sides will collect photographs and items of interest from the places they live in and work on short sketches as a way to explain about to their new friends about their lives

The first part of the project will be a residential in the British countryside, a new place for all of them; this will be a time of exploration, practical activities and discussion. They will learn about the other group and together meet young people from a local twinning group and have a discussion about the many different places that they know.

The second part of the project will be in London, where the British young people will introduce the Palestinians to their city - tourist sites and local areas - and to local people in youth clubs and schools where they will join in discussions and practical activities including drama.  Each day the young people will have a drama workshop , working in small groups to  imagine the lives of others. One day will be spent making animated film on the subject of 'changing places.'

The young people will have a chance to show their work at a public event about children's rights to be opened by a European representative. The young people from the project will talk about what they have learned during the previous days, and show the films and the drama they have prepared

At the end of the project, the participants will have a special day out  in Brighton to see the sea and celebrate their achievement.
