LISTEN (Learning from Intercultural Storytelling) is a two year project (2016-18), co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission and the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research.
LISTEN uses “applied storytelling” as an educational approach for the work with refugees – be it to support language learning, to exchange about cultural differences, to create visions etc. In order to give refugees a voice in the receiving societies and to support their integration, LISTEN explores different approaches to storytelling and how radio and other forms of audio broadcasting (e.g. podcasting) can be used as medium to share those stories. LISTEN provides extensive resources on storytelling in multiple languages, in addition to presenting the stories themselves.
