ACT FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE – THEATRE OF THE OPPRESSED
In 2013, working with A.R.T Fusion Romania with support from the European Union -Youth in Action Programme. We implemented the Act for What You Believe (AWB) project.
A.R.T. Fusion Association created the “Act for what you believe” project as an answer to the needs of civil society representatives across Europe and Africa. They are dealing with diverse social problems and need competencies in new alternative methods for improving the situation of young people facing these various problems.
AWB was developed as a capacity building project for youth workers coming from Romania, Bulgaria, Ghana, Slovenia, Tanzania, South Africa and Uganda developed practical competencies in working with Image and Forum Theatre for dealing more effeciently with social problems, conflicts and oppression from their community.
The main goal of the project was to increase the capacity of various youth organizations to raise the participation and involvement of young people in social processes and change.
The project beneficiaries took part in a long term training course focused on developing practical working competencies in working with forum and image theater methods.
YOUTHPLUS has used Forum and Image Theatre to steer discussions and knowledge building to tackle issues violence against children; discrimination of People Living With HIV/AIDs, gender based violence and discrimination, child labour.
