Through a program of workshops and activities we showed them the methods and the strategies to use theatre in their daily work with youngsters. We wanted to make them able to use theatre in their organizations as a powerful tool for human expression and conflict resolution. We wanted to empower and encourage them in the use of theatre for social change in their projects using a suitable approach and methods.
Our last aim is to promote in Europe a generation of youngsters more aware with social issues,
proactive against the intolerance and injustice situations and who promote human values and
coexistence through performing arts using the philosophy of theatre for social change.
This training course has developed a variety of non-formal skills, knowledge and attitudes regarding
theoretical and practical frames for inclusion, involvement in the society and activism in human rights in practical youth work and we want to share the results with you.
