DESCRIPTION : To start with a spoiler: the focus will be made on elaborating the notion of interculturality as a similarity and uniformity of all the cultures on the basic core level of humanistic values, moral principles and ideas through the exploration of 3 main “cultural products”, in which the culture is being reflected and objectified – rituals/ceremonies, folklore (fairy-tales) and games from our childhood. We were carrying out the idea of this YE for a pretty long period of time, meanwhile investigating and exploring different cultures during our youth and social work in the frames of Erasmus+. At some point we realized that despite all the differences between such diverse and unique cultures all over the world, we’re all still human beings living in the same world on the same globe and by all this we’re very similar. Moreover, if to continue this logic, we’re all coming from the very diverse cultures, which means that we all have a unique cultural background and by this uniqueness we’re all equal – we all have smth to share, smth to teach, smth to amuse one another with. But that’s only the beginning of this deep investigation of the interculturality. Furthermore, we came up with the understanding and experiencing that despite all the cultural differences and varieties, which can be obviously seen on the surface, on the very deep and basic level all of our cultures are built up on the same backgrounds, on the same solid basis of the main humanistic values, core moral principles and ideas. Through absorbing the culture we are being shaped and developed as a human beings and personalities. This is the core idea of the cultural development of a personality. This is how our cultural identity is being formed. Can we reflect upon our culture? Can we understand the deep core values, principles and ideas, on which our culture is based? Is it possible to go deep, understand, feel and experience the other cultures? Is it possible to compare my culture with one’s own culture and to find the basic similarities, on which both cultures are based? And if the answer is yes, how can we do it, which methods or tools should we use, what are the products of the culture, in which it is being reflected and objectified? We strongly believe, that the culture is being reflected and objectified in at least 3 main “cultural products”, which are rituals/ceremonies, folklore (fairy-tales) and games from our childhood.
