Idea Sketch | Proposal

Proposal

Idea pitch

We would like to organise a several days’ duration meeting of exhibitioners of the NGO GFPS, which is arranged every semester in different cities of DE, PL and CZE. At this rally are presented exhibitioners’ projects, due to which they gained a stipend for studying at foreign university one of the aforementioned states. In addition to this is going to be prepared an attendant program, which topic is history of city and how it is reflected in present days.

Where will your idea take place?

Brno

Why does Europe need your idea?

A main topic is a history of town and how reflects this history in everyday life of citizens. History is regarded as something unnecessary, but all, what happens today, has cause in past and we want to show, that in history can be found many explanations. We want to arrange this project in an international environment in line with a meeting of exhibitioners of the NGO GFPS.

What is your impact?

We want to arouse participants to be interested in history the place, where they live. People both pass lot of things and buildings in the spot, where they live and they use typical words or customs this region without knowing, how these things have arisen. We want to show participants and citizens of Brno, how many secrets and clarification of present can be hidden in history and so lead them to interest in history of place, where they are living.

How do you get there?

The participants are coming to Brno at 7th July. Next day projects of exhibitors are going to be presented and after presentations it comes to city game, in which participants and citizens of Brno are going to visit a different spots in the centre of town and fulfil various tasks. Groups are going to be international and all tasks are going to lead to knowing the history of town and places of interest.
On Saturday participants are going to take part in a lecture about the oldest history of Brno and afterwards two workshops are going to be in line. One of them is about the typical dialect of Brno, which is deeply influenced by German and the second is going to be about different buildings in the town and how have been being changed the perception of these buildings by citizens of Brno.

What is your story?

-

Who are you doing it for?

The project is done for students from DE, PL, CZE and BL and for the citizens of Brno.

What makes your idea stand apart?

The conversation language in our organisation is primarily German, possibly Polish and Czech. There are lot of business concerns and employers, who demand German as well as English, but there are not many people, who know this second language and our organization and its project enables to improve German and use it in praxis.The topic of our project interconnects the studying of history with the present world and shows, that answers for all,what is or happens on some place, can be found in past.
