        Since January 2005 a new youth organization started its activity. Etanis group belongs
to this organization. As the members of Organization for Development of Youth “Odyssey”
we decided to co-operate with other associations from European Union countries.

The first step to it will be organization International Music Workshops.

We would like to invite you (your organization) to take part in this event. International Music
Workshops “WE PLAY TOGETHER” will be during summer holidays.

Date: Because of the form of realization the workshops will last 16 days.

Place: Września (central Poland, 50 km from Poznań). We guarantee accommodation and
boards in an attractive recreation – sport center (Finnish houses).

Participants: This project is aimed to young people aged 15-25 who have musical, artistic,
singing or acting skills. Countries which want to take part in those workshops can send max.
12 people – 10 participants and 2 people who will take care of the group.

Youth together with Etanis band will prepare vocal – instrumental songs (in English) and a
concert. To our disposition we have a room for our rehearsals and a recording studio. The
compositions will be recorded in a studio and presented in public media and on a final
concert. Participants will be working in three groups:
   - - vocal – instrumental group – with youth who can sing and play musical instruments.
       Together with Etanis group they will prepare songs. During the rehearsals they will
       decide which ones instruments will be used in songs (Attention! Musical instruments
       to play: violins, guitars, etc… you have to bring with you because organizers aren’t
       able to assure them). From the members of the group will be made a chorus, which
       will prepare vocal parts to the songs together with Etanis. Solo singers will have solo
       parts. Songs prepared by this group will be recorded in the studio. This group has to its
       disposition a room for rehearsals, a studio, and musical equipment like: amplifiers,
       microphones, loudspeakers. Participants will be also able to use Etanis’s private
       equipment: a percussion, amplifiers, guitars, a keyboard.
   -   plastic art group – they will prepare decorations for the final concert in the
       amphitheatre. They will also prepare internet web page about workshops and
       documentation – photos and a VHS cassette. Those materials will be recorded on CD
       which participants will receive. This group has to its disposition a room and
       equipment: a computer, a camera, a digital camera, a printer, a scanner and a
       connection to the internet.
   -   happening group, will prepare games and a final happening (popular form of art
       presentation) with disabled people. Activities of the group will have a place in
       workshop of active therapy. They will prepare clothes for participants, short sketches
       or ballet which will be connected with songs prepared by vocal-instrumental group.
       Happening will be on the day of the final concert. This group will also prepare
       “extremely colorful wrap (cloth)” for moving activities and a walk through the streets
       in happening clothes. They have to convince inhabitants of Września to come to a
       final concert.
