REPRESENTING ROMANIAN CULTURE
The cultural exchange is an important part of every Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps project, so you need to be prepared to present the Romanian traditions and culture! Most of the projects have a specific evening dedicated to presenting the participating countries, so each team will have an allocated time. Deciding what to do can be quite challenging, so here are a few ideas & tips:
Don’t prepare a long power point presentation! Short, fun and interactive quizzes work best with the other participants. You can even prepare a prize for the team that correctly guesses the most questions.
Try to find short, but full of impact videos about your country. There are a great variety of videos that show Romania’s great touristic potential, which will definitely make the other participants want to visit it! Here are a few options you can choose from:
Of course, if you are into filming and editing, you can create your own presentation video. The options are endless!
You can never go wrong with traditional dances. Try to make use of the potential of every participant in the team: maybe one can sing, or another has taken traditional dancing lessons!
When presenting the Romanian culture and traditions, try to think outside the box. Talk to the other participants in your team and do some brainstorming. If possible, you can cook some traditional dishes and ask the other participants to help you!
An unofficial cultural nights' guide for the official Erasmus+ program is available on our website, so check it out!
