Workshops 2023

Theme & Focus

We have learned from the experiences of the previous workshops and therefore adapted our concept slightly. The interest especially in the topic of gender was so high in the 2021-round of the Aswatona Program that we made it our main topic in both workshops in 2023. The topics of environment and power dynamics will be looked at through the gender lens.

What our participants can expect:

Our main goal for the workshops in 2023 was to have a safe space where people feel brave and safe to speak with each other. We also wanted it to be fun, interactive, and vivid for all participants – since we know that especially online workshops can be tiring.
Based on the needs of our participants the following topics and focal points were collected:

For this we invited some great experts from the region, for the region, enriching the Aswatona network.

In this round of the Aswatona Program we included Mentors who are Alumni from the Aswatona Program 2021. They support and consult our participants with their podcast production. We are happy to present to you:

We are trying hard to make sure that everyone can participate in our workshop in Tunisia, but in the end, it is unfortunately not us who decide about visas. Everyone should still have the opportunity to participate, which is why we will hold the workshop hybrid. Hybrid means that the participants can also join online. We coordinate the workshop on site in such a way that the online participants are actively involved and learn just as much and have just as much fun as everyone on site.
