Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., is looking for participatns to take part in the training course ARTinclusive.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The traditional and not traditional theatre (immersive theatre or interactive theatre) is being used extensively in non-formal education for promotion of human rights. Human rights practitioners prove that theatre is used as a powerful tool in human rights work and theatre exercises and tools have been particularly useful for groups and communities that are looking to solve their problems. Yet, despite this, one of the biggest “minority” groups of our world, people with special needs are limited in their possibilities to use this powerful tool.

The idea of the project is providing a space for youth workers to experience, exchange and develop new methodologies for implementing activities in the local reality for inclusion of people with special needs by using theatre and performance arts. We have realized that even those who involve young people with special needs in their training courses or local activities never asked themselves such questions: Can blind and partially sighted people create experiences through theatre and performance arts? How inclusive can we be in our creativity? Creative activities and self-expression can so often seem off-limits to many people – and this includes the world of theatre equally.

PARTICIPANTS

The project is organised for youth leaders and youth workers working in the involved partner countries and are:
– involved in educational theatre and performance arts;
