Krzyżowa Fundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe
Foundation Bibliodrama Academy


The Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe in cooperation with the Foundation Bibliodrama Academy would like to invite you to the European Bibliodrama Workshop, which will take place in Krzyżowa from 10-14 August 2024.

EBW is a meeting of bibliodrama leaders and people interested in bibliodrama from all over Europe. It is a time to exchange experiences and create joint plans for the development of bibliodrama in Europe. Workshops will be led by experienced European trainers and the programme also includes joint excursions, talks and discussions.

The event is open to all people irrespective of worldview and religious affiliation and also to those without bibliodramatic experience.

What is bibliodrama?

Bibliodrama is an open-ended process of interaction between a biblical text and a group of people, in which an attempt is made to integrate the biblical message with personal experiences. The aim is a new religious experience and understanding of the Bible based on the participants' identification with biblical characters and situations.

As can be seen from this brief definition, bibliodrama, by involving the whole person - their intellectual, emotional, spiritual and bodily spheres - is a tool for integral human development.

The biblical text contains paradigmatic, archetypal existential situations. They narrate the fundamental experiences of human relationships and the human-God relationship. This wide range of themes, combined with the variety of methods used in bibliodrama, makes it possible for workshop participants to enter into a process internally and with the group, the fruit of which is confronting the text and then reflecting on this experience and answering the question about its relationship to their own lives.

In bibliodrama there is a hermeneutic circle: myself - text - life.

In bilodrama we use body work, drama, psychodrama, visual arts (drawing, painting, collage, installation) and literary methods (psalm, diary, letter, haiku).

The use of methods is related to the individual style of the leader, the aim of the workshop, the type of text and the school of bibliodrama in which the leader is trained (processual, psychodramatic, pastoral).

Bibliodrama helps to deepen self-knowledge through confrontation with biblical situations and characters, awareness of experienced feelings and needs, contact with the body and integration of the body with the cognitive-emotional sphere, artistic expression, empathic imagination and a creative approach to reality.
