Detailed Information
The Trans-National Seminar

Participants can be from the following countries: Albania,
Bosnia-Hercegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Romania,
Slovenia, Turkey, and Yugoslavia (Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo).

The seminar takes place from July 20 -  29 and will be located either in
Bosnia-Hercegovina or in Serbia. Accomodation and food are paid for by BTL,
and travel costs are supported for all accepted participants.

The Follow-Up Seminars

The Trans-National Seminar marks the end of the main BTL program for 2001.
However, for the most interested and active participants from each of the
previous seminars held throughout the Balkans (including the Trans-National)
there are 2 special follow-up seminars.

The first of these takes place in August at the SHL Youthhouse in Sarajevo.
This seminar is for those young people interested in developing "community"
projects in their local area. The seminar will assist them in creating
realistic project plans, the skills needed to implement the project, and
offers the possibility of financial and organizational assistance through
the program.

The second "special" seminar takes place in Berlin, Germany in November.
This seminar is for those who are interested in continuing further in the
direction of theater and performance. In Berlin, the mult-national group of
participants from throughout the Balkans work together with theater
professionals to create an original performance based on the BTL seminar
themes. This will be performed in Berlin and at schools and centers in
Northern Germany.
