A personal guide to successful workshops for European projects

My name is Valentin. I studied digital marketing, I'm passionate about arts and worked 8 months as a youth worker. I created and facilitated 6 workshops; Photography Lab, Music Lab, Chess Club, Digital Lab (about digital marketing and creation), Iron Mind (about argumentation and persuasion), French classes and some workshops about European values. Around 400 youngsters benefit them. In this short guide, I put everything I learnt on how to create, promote, animate and maintain a workshop in European projects context.


My coordinator is finishing her presentation speech and passing the mic to me. It's my turn to speak. In front of me, 53 Romanian students of a difficult high school are waiting to hear what a French Erasmus+ volunteer has to say. Like the 5 others members of our Arts Lab caravan, I created a workshop using arts to enhance the life of youngsters and I have a few seconds to introduce it with passion and credibility, so people decide to sign up to it, or not. I spent a lot of time to create my photography workshop. I also spent a lot of time improving it. We have been practicing in many different schools, for all ages, with many time constraints, different communities, non-English speakers and some with disabilities (blind and autistic kids). We took feedback each time and try our best to improve. So here I am in front of the class, it's my turn to present my workshop and I actually know exactly what to say. Not that I learnt my speech by heart, but I henceforth understand how to make it great. Like a choreography, I enchain sentences that I choose purposefully over time. Shaping my presentation with emotions and energy. Many join the workshop and I now have 45 minutes to transmit my passion about photography, but here also, I'm using a clear and efficient pedagogue plan. Students are involved and seems having fun, they take great pictures. Eventually the anonymous feedback is positive. It's another success, without surprise. After dozens of interventions, I would like to share the method I use to guarantee the success of my workshops.
