The Multiplier Event in Constanta, Romania had great success, as many representatives of local, national and European NGOs, companies and institutions participated at the event.

The multiplier consisted of an outdoors session during the first part of the day (A storytelling hunt) and an indoors session afterwards which consisted of a presentation of the storytelling hunt results, a presentation of the partners, the project and of the Intellectual Outputs.

Some of the young volunteers involved in the project, who wrote stories for IO1, the Storytelling HUB, talked about their experience during the training and during the writing process, which in most cases, it was a very fulfilling and emotional one.

A game-session with the whole group was organized, as the participants had to find objects and solve the EscapeStory Sphere game (IO2), an output that received great feedback and reactions.

The organizers moderated an online discussion with a special guest of the event, Simona Mirela Miculescu, PhD in French literature magna cum laudae, Ambassador of Romania to the Permanent Delegation of Romania to UNESCO (Paris). The Ambassador spoke to the participants about the Creative Cities Network, the role of literature and storytelling in education and culture and the importance of involving young people in the development of cities and the protection of tangible and intangible cultural heritage (such as stories).

A non-formal game on social inclusion was organized with all the participants, for them to get a taste of what the training and workshop sessions felt like for the project participants. A feedback session was implemented at the end of the event and all participants responded positively.
