The Homelands project is also about training. At the start of the Homelands process with the new artists, a 1-week artistic residency is organized by the IYMF during which an (inter) national team of IYMF cultural ambassadors and experts work with the tandems, teaching them complementary artistic activities, pedagogical and social skills needed to engage in the co-creative process.
2 additional training sessions/master classes will be integrated in the process in order to address the needs and challenges that will rise during the project and to prepare the final result of each project.
