The trainer asks the participants about their behaviors in certain instances, their feelings but also personal experiences that affect their everyday life. The next part of this session is to identify the pop culture in comparison to the subculture. What does subculture means? How can we identify it in the different groups within the society? The trainer asks for specific examples of pop and sub culture in order to define the differences and to open discussion about the various aspects of our culture.
What aspects of our culture do we understand and which ones are invisible to others?
