The Edustories project aims to share the stories of those who work in social work, such as educator, teacher, youth worker, etc. The project stems from the collaboration between Eduraduno, the Itinere cooperative, and the StoryAP archive.
The first topic on which we invited to tell is that of social work at the time of the coronavirus.
MEMORIES of the present. PRESENT of memories
around the coronavirus
Eduraduno in collaboration with the European archive StoryAP- Stories for Active Participation and the Itinere Cooperative, launches an invitation to those who work in the world of professional education to share their experiences of social work.
We invite you to tell Memories of the present to feed the PRESENT with memories, because we believe that sharing experiences of work and social action, and creating knowledge and practices together from these experiences, can contribute to the realization of a more supportive, truly inclusive world .
Educators and educators during the quarantine period have tried to keep the foundations of their work – involvement, participation, closeness, creativity – while redesigning the profiles of their profession and inventing new forms of support and mediation that could become solutions to build a tomorrow in which this precious work can finally find the right recognition.
For this reason, we invite you to send us a story inspired by this period – new experiences of solidarity, of social and educational work during and beyond the quarantine, of communities that respond to the emergency. It can be a lived experience, or a first-person experience or an experience realized by others that struck you and that you think is important to share and to remember.
The stories will be published on the storyap.eu website and on social media, as well as becoming part of a book and a collective video by StoryAp, to build a wealth of concrete experiences available to those who want to promote change actions by referring to the present that already exists, but is still not very visible.
How to tell
With MEMORIES of the present. PRESENT of memories Eduraduno and StoryAp want to bring out the resources, the great creativity, intelligence and heart that people, associations, teachers, educators / social workers are working on.
These are the questions to keep in mind:
- Why is this experience important for you and others? what teachings and messages does it contain?
- once the emergency is over, what should be maintained of this experience? how to treasure it beyond the lockdown?
