Mosaic of Communication (Guadeloupe)
Effective communication and craft of mosaic making
Location: Sainte-Anne, GUADELOUPE (France)
The course raises awareness of the need to learn effective communication in order to be successful in our social lives and to achieve the goals raised in Europe 2020. By exploring different types of communication while creating a mosaic, participants will analyse skills that make their communication effective. The skills can be compared to a pieces of mosaic – we can observe the colour and the shape of a single piece, but only a complete picture of assembled pieces together give us aesthetic satisfaction. The same with the communication – only understanding the mechanism behind communication and engaging the skills efficiently we can achieve effective communication. The course methodology is unique in a way that participants not only improve their understanding of effective communication but also learn the craft of mosaic making. The artist Kostas Klimavicius and his workshop "The bridge of mosaic"(https://www.facebook.com/mozaikostiltas) support the practicum of effective communication.
