ABOUT THE PROJECT
The project “Activism and theater as a way of defending Human Rights” recognizes the transformative power of theater as a tool for social change. It aims to harness the creative energy and passion of young Europeans and channel it into meaningful activism and advocacy for human rights. By combining the art of theater with the principles of activism, we seek to inspire, educate, and engage the youth in addressing pressing social issues.
Through this project, we aim to provide a platform for young individuals to express themselves, explore diverse perspectives, and raise awareness about human rights violations, discrimination, and social injustice. By using the stage as a medium, we can amplify their voices and create a dialogue that transcends borders, cultures, and languages.
This project not only encourages artistic expression but also offers practical training and resources to equip young activists with the necessary tools to effect change. Workshops, seminars, and mentoring sessions will provide participants with the skills to develop compelling narratives and create impactful performances. Through their performances and advocacy efforts, these young activists will challenge prejudices, dismantle systemic barriers, and inspire others to join the cause. Together, we can turn the spotlight on injustice and drive meaningful social transformation for a better future.
OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT
