You are an artist, a performer, visual artist, film director, screenwriter, sound designer, musician, digital content creator, writer or any other creative job?

What we offer
Mobile Stories explores an innovative learning method leading to the creation of an online and an offline collective exhibition. It is a training. You will explore the use of digital tools and collective art creation to help youth, or other types of audience, to better self-express and learn acceptance. For those working with youth with mobility restrictions, you have the opportunity to bring along youngsters from your local context. At the end of the training, we want you to master a set of tools related to script writing, audio editing and voice over, visual editing and integration, as well as to use diverse apps and social media tools, for getting your artistic message across. Then you’ll help the audience you work with to do the same! It is an art residency. You’ll be hosted in a creative rural barn to research, question, develop and confront your art vision and practices with trainers and participants. Videos, pictures, sounds, music, words, voices, drawings…The aim will be to gradually merge your personal skills and creative background into a collective physical and digital exhibition. At the end of the residency-training a physical and digital exhibition will connect our artworks with the local rural community. By going digital we also look further to reach out your personal and professional networks across countries to raise awareness about. Last but not least, Mobile Stories is an inclusive experience of intercultural European dialogue and eco-responsible lifestyle taking place in Oasis les ages, a picturesque French eco-village surrounded by farmers and artisans from the local rural community. As art is no longer meaningful without sustainability, we opt for sustainable food and reasonable energy consumption. Let’s also reflect together about local actions!
Learning methods
How our embodied experience of movement recorded through digital tools shape our identity and can connect us to ourselves and others, in creative, innovative, fulfilling ways? How can our smartphone apps become the initial material for self-expression, storytelling and creative learning? Our methodology is based on experiential learning (learn by doing it!), interdisciplinary exchange (widen your panel of knowledge!) outdoor education and non-formal education principles (explore the power of collective intelligence!). Participants will learn through testing designed methods and reflecting upon the experience. Using a participatory approach, we encourage the exchange of experience between the participants and with the local community, fostering peer learning. We are looking for diverse participants profiles to foster co-learning and enrich everyone’s projects with the expertise and perspective of others, to help you develop a mesmerizing multimedia story!
Participation fee
At the end of our activities, we will ask each person to make a donation, as a personal reward offered for the experience. It is a free participation fee. The amount collected will be dedicated to Tiliade team training. It will support our organization crew to design and propose ever better creative community projects.
