Can you guess how many obstacles one might encounter in order to participate in a European meeting in Covid times?
Many. Incredibly many.
After a one-way trip Rome-Berlin and a positive contact, followed by a night return Berlin-Rome, on Monday 28 February and Tuesday 1 March, we managed to take part in the first transnational meeting of the project NACCS – Narrative Accountability in Cultural and Community Settings, a strategic partnership in the field of Vocational Education and Training (VET), composed of 7 partners from Germany, Italy, Greece, the Netherlands and Cyprus, led by Comparative Research Network in Berlin.
The challenge (besides the physical meeting): to get to know each other and lay a solid managerial foundation to find a shared European practice to support cultural, civic and social organisations in working with stories and narratives – from digital and visual storytelling to oral stories – in a responsible, equitable and inclusive way.
