Life as Theatre
Start date: May 1, 2015,
End date: Apr 30, 2016
"Life as Theatre" is a ground-breaking international training seminar which will take place in Lyon, France and bring together 36 young people from France, Poland, Spain, Bulgaria, Italy and Turkey. This project is a follow-up after the youth exchange organised with the same topic by our organisation in summer 2014. This project will provide opportunity for young people to work on intercultural learning through theatre. Forum theatre is a fantastic tool that will empower young people and give them the opportunity to pay attention, reflect and react, to express their opinion and point of view about the various topics like millennium goals, global challenges, European citizenship, youth participation, etc. In all these subjects interculturality will play big role and non-formal learning principles and practice will be reflected throughout the project. Participants will take active role and will be the main directors in the process of preparing the theatre play. Young people by themselves will decide for the main topic for the final play and from the beginning, they will be actively involved in the whole theatre management – they will prepare the scenario, divide the characters, costumes etc. Participants will come together from various backgrounds and cultures, with different experience and points of view. They will have an opportunity to discover the intercultural richness through interactive methods and using the beauty of theatre. Young people will share and present their cultures and use intercultural dialogue as a tool to understand their own backgrounds and increase the awareness about their European identity. During this project lot of effort will be put on the process and reflection about all these topics and participants will create short movie from the whole development of the project activities and the same one will be used after at local and international levels and by the partners in general to increase the visibility of the project and in same time to motivate “new” young people for active participation.
