Europe 2020 is the European Union's growth strategy for the coming decade and its targets include innovation, education and social inclusion. The combination of innovation and education is even more novel and forthcoming in the European context. Especially in the out-of-classroom field, informal education for young adults, the available learning opportunities are still very limited. Furthermore, the addition of the third target of Europe 2020, that of social inclusion is essential to the growth-leading path Europe needs to follow within the next decade because cohesion, interaction, mutual understanding, non-discrimination are key parameters for the realization of a well-developed society. In this context, the INGAME project, funded through the Erasmus+ Programme, proposes the development of a serious game for young adults. This work presents game design focused on social and civic inclusion. The interactive game aims to generate growth, and skill-building and at the same time address social challenges


Common Ground Common Future - Applying Storytelling in Conflict and Polarisation

Frühmann P., Barel A., Gavrilovici O., Dahlsveen H.

International Theatre and Film Books · November 2021

ISBN: 9789 064039 126


This book has been written for an Erasmus+ project.
In times of crisis, conflict and polarization, it may pay for those involved to share and analyse stories to find common ground and a common future, sustainable and safe for all. If we understand the causes and drivers of conflict (i.e. contexts, language, emotions, memories) we might be able to initiate and support desired change. The book is a compendium, based on the most recent and relevant experiences of the project partners, (current) literature of academic researchers from various disciplines, and experienced practitioners in these fields.

Constructive Conversations - Storytelling applied to guidance, consultancy, communities and organizations

Pammer I., Frühmann P.

Euroguidance Fachtagung (Lifelong Guidance in einem dynamischen Arbeitsmarkt), Vienna, November 2018


A conference paper within the context of the ‘StoryTeller’ project, an international partnership funded by the Erasmus+ programme. It gives a short overview of how narrative practices and storytelling (and –listening) methods can overcome limiting beliefs and can support in deconstructing dominant narratives, and can help to build alternative (future) narratives. We hope to make you aware of the possibilities and potential of working with stories.

The Times They Art A-Changing - An essay on art-based learning

applied to leadership

Frühmann P.

Erasmus+ project Artful Leader · June 2018 (published on Researchgate)


This conference paper (Artful Leader, Porto, Portugal) is a personal tour past the functions and roles of the arts and their influence on individuals, communities and societies, how they can confront us with visions, dilemmas, aesthetics and ethics, reflections and solutions, and by doing so might be able to provide new directions, innovative tools and concrete actions for present and future leaders and their communities.
The essay is an attempt to prove the Erasmus+ Artful Leader project’s value and to support its objectives. The presented resources are the Project’s State of The Art report, personal reflections, notes from past and present literature, and highlights of postings by the partners during more than two years on the project’s Facebook group, which include references to accessible literature and relevant videos.

Do we need a perfect language or good stories?

An essay on language acquisition and use

Frühmann P.

Fictions - Fabricio Serra Editore, Pisa - Roma · June 2016


This essay is inspired any the perceived 'obsession' that languages should be (grammatically) spoken and written flawlessly. Reading literature connected to language acquisition, I became interested in the onset of languages and encountered storytelling, or better: working with stories to become a competent language user.
