Searching For King
In Searching for Knights, we will focus on the topic of cooperation vs competition, inclusion vs exclusion.
For residents of Greece, Latvia, Czech Republic, Great Britain, Lithuania, Romania, and Spain.
The project is financed by Erasmus+.
Live-Action Role Playing is a combination of a game and theater.
Game, because it has rules (e.g. number of lives and ways how to “kill” somebody).
Theater, because each player is taking and acting the role of a fictional character.
We are using this method for learning purposes:
- it allows us to safely experiment with our behaviors,
- to discover what we agree and disagree with,
- and to figure out more about ourselves.
We will meet with 48 people from 7 different countries in a venue in the Northern Ireland, Bushmills.
Per country, we have space for 7 youngsters (from 18 to 30 years old) and 1 group leader (20+ years old, a youth worker or a youth leader who took part in some of the previous projects).
The program spans across 10 days.
- How do I behave in a group?
- How do I include myself and others into it?
- How do I react to unpleasant events?

I have learned the methods of body movement, coaching, systemic work (constellation), storytelling, LARP, theater, and games. Thanks to that, I came to understand that our life is a story we tell to ourselves. It is 100% in our power to rewrite the story according to our needs. When we stop being victims to whom life is happening and become accountable, we can choose our own lives. We can tell stories through our voice, but also through our minds (NLP), through our bodies (body movement) or through the world around us (constellation). My strongest point are my observation skills, reframing, thinking outside the box, creativity, and metaphors. Let me be the pen which helps you write your new story.
