Call for Applications: Dialogue Practitioners Summer School

The Danish Egyptian Dialogue Institute (DEDI) would like to invite you to participate in this year’s Dialogue Forum. The forum aims at bringing together 12 young Egyptians and 12 Danes to practically explore and engage in dialogue. This year’s Dialogue Forum, in partnership with the Danish Youth Council (DUF) and the Danish Center for Dialogue, will focus on the exchange of experience and knowledge among Egyptian and Danish dialogue practitioners under the theme: “Dialogue Tools: differences in contexts – differences in methods or styles?”

By Dialogue Practitioners we mean dialogue educators and facilitators who work with dialogue, defining dialogue as a tool they use intentionally in their work. The Practitioners who are aware of the impact dialogue has on their target group and are in a stage where they are eager to revise these tools with others working in similar fields, exchange knowledge, challenges, and best practices. Moreover, Dialogue practitioners could be coming from different fields from art and culture, civic education, youth development, gender, participation, with the common aspect of using dialogue as their main methodology. They have contributed to the development of dialogue tools, integrating dialogue within different manuals and educational material, or facilitate dialogue tools and activities.

This year’s forum will be for 6 days on the 12th -17th of August in Haslev, Denmark. All expenses are covered by DEDI.

Who’s the right candidate:

The eligible applicant is a 20-35 years old Egyptian or Dane and would consider themselves a dialogue practitioner. S/He should typically be willing and enthusiastic about working in teams among a diverse group of participants. An applicant must be completely dedicated to the forum and fully present during the forum week. Selection will intend to fulfil a high degree of cultural and social diversity among participants.
