Practicelarp.net has been created as part of the European project “If I were in your shoes. The transformational power of good practice in larping”. All partners apply live roleplaying and related practices in informal and/ or formal contexts to provide a unique immersive experience for trainers and staff of the participating organisations. This is inclusive and holistic performative practice can be applied to a broad range of topics such as peace-building, migration, democracy, etc. Enabled by the Erasmus+ partnership program, we intend to explore and exchange best-practice examples in terms of facilitation and content from the five international partners in this project:
Through this project we aim at giving the staff of all partners the chance to participate and benefit from our gained knowledge and creativity and give professional feedback for further development. Therefore the tools and methods will be evaluated systematically. The project was formed in June 2021 with expectation to run until 2023.
More about the partners
The team of Munich University will bridge the gap between formal and non-formal education and contribute with expertise in the research and evaluation of the methods and tools. Their inputs will often be starting point for discussion on impact and adaptability as well as further development options for the methods.
Zavod Bob’s specialisation is youth and community related work. Therefore they use social games, simulations and role-plays as well as the implementation of LARPs. As special aspects they will focus on their work with youngsters with less opportunities and vulnerable groups.
Laboratorio 41 from Italy with its large team of artists, writers, theatre professionals and musicians has a very strong connection to cultural practice and will provide expertise and creativity not only on this level but as well from the perspective of experience designers, human rights professionals and IT experts. Socially impacting and transformative events, both in presence and online are their speciality. Here the consortium can profit from their, and as well LMUs, experience concerning the actual need (lately triggered by the Corona-crisis) for methods transfer and further development of Educational approaches into the digital world.
The Swedish partner LajvVerkstaden is especially focused on art, design and concepts for the LARP method, bringing the special focus of Nordic-LARP and the work with immigrants. This is connecting as well with solar e.V.’s experience of using LARP and simulation techniques as a tool for the education on migration and inclusion issues.
Solar e.V. is a non-profit organisation working in the field of political education. We offer seminars, workshops and training to raise awareness of disempowerment, reflect on privilege, learn about power sharing & empowerment, climate change, inclusion migration and flight. We use non-formal, intersectional educational methods in our educational work for children, young people and adults. In the last three years we have developed the EduLARP "Minosia Labyrinth", an interactive educational tool on the topics of migration, flight and inclusion, which we played within the "If I were in your shoes" project during the first training activity in Brandenburg.
