My Personal Everest is a project composed of two Training Courses on art as a form of self-knowledge through self-expression and the discovery of inner strength and skills such as resilience, emotional competencies, and flexibility.
The main idea of the project is that we all are artists because the process of Creation is something connected with us. We forgot it and we tend to dismiss it because maybe our inner thoughts are telling us that art is not for us, that we are not good enough and many other devaluating whispers to our ears.
The main reason why we want to carry out this project is the common concern about mental health issues arose more intensely during the pandemic. Worldwide we are assisting in a parallel silent pandemic, called demotivation, depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and eating disorders, hitting the population and mainly youth.
So the project will meet a double need:
- Needs to reinforce the youth workers’ personal and professional competencies with new methods tailored to the discovery of self-care and the empowerment of inner competencies and of new tools and methods;
- Needs to reinforce and support, through this path, youth (indirect beneficiaries) facing the recent psychological diseases connected with the lack of emotional awareness, expression, contact, and emotional management.
Participants will be accommodated in double rooms in Hotel Benczur, except for participants who are living in Budapest or within 10 km. A 3-course meal will be available for lunch, a 2-course meal will be available for dinner and one coffee break with snacks during each training day for all participants.
Reimbursment will be done after full participation in the event and after presenting all receipts, travel documents, and boarding pass to the coordinator Anthropolis.
Estonia: max. 275 EUR/person
