During the workshops in Berlin many "cultural vehicles" were used: writing and performing theatre etudes, reading prose and poetry, going to an exhibition on humor in art, viewing a puppet theatre production. The arts-based activities helped especially those participants who were not used to debating in an academic, theoretical way. Some of them, who had refused to do any performing at the beginning of the course, eventually found great pleasure in acting and telling stories. Among other things, they learned that it can be helpful to articulate one's fears publicly ("I am stressed/ nervous") and that it is by no means "embarrassing". They performed with immense enthusiasm, showing a real talent and a capacity to show sympathy for other characters. Working on a given topic in teams was a new experience for a lot of people and helped them in organizing their learning process. Some participants attended nearly all workshops and gained a new perspectives on their lives.
