Harmony Days - Workshops

Harmony Days: History of Workshops

Harmony Days is primarily composed of artists and enthusiasts united by a common, unifying goal: «Creating unforgettable memories together.» This applies not only to the audience but also to artists, performers, producers, and those behind the scenes who are often too little mentioned. Acting for communities, minorities, and youth has been part of our mission from the start since our foundation in July 2017. Thanks to the support of a solid network of professionals in the socio-educational field, we can offer both entertaining and educational support.

Why these workshops?

Writing, in the broadest sense, represents a significant part of our creative process, eloquently expressing ideas that are sometimes fleeting in the air. Songs, stories, scripts, mood boards allow us to put our dreams on paper, giving them substance and life. Always driven by the desire to convey and inspire, HARMONY DAYS offers to introduce participants to the ancient art of storytelling, whether fantastic or not, uplifting, or even frightening, as long as it embodies what you want to convey to the audience.

Music Workshop: At the beginning of the year, we had the privilege of participating as speakers in the music workshop on «Rap» initiated by the La Fontanelle Foundation in Mex (St-Maurice), VS, thanks to the trust, ingenuity, and openness of this wonderful institution.

Common Goals Achieved: • Strengthening oral and written expression • Writing and text/song analysis sessions • Joint and individual creation of new pieces • Introduction to music production • Participation of 15 young people who discovered a passion • 1-hour video documentation • A concert in front of 250 people • Good visibility through the newspaper «Le Nouvelliste»

Workshop HD - Comics / Mangas

Workshop HD - Comic:

We have just completed the development of a new workshop that we will offer to schools and socio-educational institutions starting from December 2023.

We combine immersion and co-creation in the world of graphic novels (comics/mangas) through entertaining workshops with a strong connection to the school French curriculum. Participants create their own story with professionals in storytelling and illustration!

Number of participants: 4-6 people Structure over 14 modular sessions

Common objectives: • Discover a new activity while having fun • Create a story in A5 format with about ten pages • Produce about twenty illustrations • Improve French language skills • Express oneself through writing • Develop artistic expression • Exchange and share visions • Highlight the appreciation of young individuals through the production of a tangible end product: a comic.

Our approach: The Harmony Days workshops, designed for youth aged 15 to 25 in French-speaking Switzerland, adopt a unique psychosocial approach. These free workshops, spread over 14 modular sessions, are open to households, schools, and community centers, promoting a participatory and inclusive approach.

The initiators: A dedicated expert duo behind this innovative project! A duo of initiators with a Bachelor’s degree in social work - Loriane Thomas - and over 10 years of educational experience in the school domain - Laura Jane Ramachurn.

We also collaborate with passionate female illustrators directly from the local scene. Their passion and commitment manifest in an innovative approach to the psychosocial well-being of young people.

The playful approach: A creative and joyful adventure at the heart of each session, where the playful aspect comes to life, transforming personal expression into a collective adventure. Participants are invited to explore their creativity interactively, creating a learning environment that is as positive as it is inclusive.

Creative expression: Let’s create a unique comic! The creative adventure reaches its peak with the development of an original story that resonates with us.
