Demonstration event in Rotterdam 26.03.2014

The first demonstration event in Rotterdam was a big step forward for the Tell me a Story project. The main focus was the guiding tour with a local guide, following the selected stories. It was very important to test our methodology in real life environment. Every partner brought representatives from the target groups in their country. Everyone enjoyed the tour thus proving the success of the alternative methods implemented by the project.

Right after that, the participants attended the Tell me a Story presentation in the city library of Rotterdam. The event also raised interest among local tour guides and policy makers, which took part in it. Our first prize winner in the first round of the Tell me a Story contest told one of her stories about the region of Bodensee, Germany.
At the end we all enjoyed a very entertaining performance by Herco Kruik - a freelance writer, publisher and city guide in Rotterdam. He introduced his own Rotterdam city tour about the many nicknames the people from Rotterdam make up for their streets, buildings, bridges, art objects.
