SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT
Theater is a mediation means which is conducive to creating bonds and ties among people. The thespian practice favors meeting people and develops social skills which encourage inclusion. The individuals learn to express themselves better and be better off with their own body.
In the field of the non-formal education and the youth, theater is a catalyst factor as regards developing competences and promoting the young people’s social inclusion. As a matter of fact, given that young people with special needs and some form of handicap are often given less opportunities and get into a state of exclusion from social life, reducing thus their social skills, it is the theater which can offer them broader opportunities to express their wishes, an outlet for interaction with their peers and a means to develop their “soft skills”. This theatrical practice may prove to be all to efficient for the young people’s educators, mainly those working with refugees, immigrants, young people living in unprivileged areas and/or young people with special needs. The theatrical practice can turn out to be a convenient (or: alternative) method to promote the social inclusion of those young people with difficult and precarious lifestyle (or: background).
The young people educators and animators have an essential part to play in the education, development and well-being of the young people if they choose to insert the theatrical practice into their everyday activities.
They have a real duty: to take part in the social inclusion of the young people regardless of origin and competences, and to ensure their well-being and their personal development. In order for the young people’s educators to make the most of this tool, they have to work perspicuously to develop some competences in this field, so that they can offer a better educational frame which would make easier the frail young people’s social inclusion in the local community. To this end, the theatrical activities stand as bright solutions. The NGO which work with the youth have also to embolden the young people’s active participation in the dealings of the civil society. Education thru theater is an efficient tool in this regard!
In this context, we wish to launch a training course which will take place on the island of Lefkas (Greece) and last 10 days. It will involve 30 young people’s educators and animators who work in the interest of the young immigrants, refugees, persons with special needs and living in unprivileged suburbs. The countries involved will be France, Greece, Austria, Poland, Spain, Romania, Portugal, Estonia and Italy, Bulgaria & CZ.
In the course of this training, the beneficiary youth workers/ educators will shareexperiences, views and good practices on this subject and elaborate theoretically and practically on theater as an artistic and social means to reach an innovative methodology favoring social inclusion, integration and the intercultural dialogue. Within this frame, theater can boost the educators’ competences and potency for launching new activities aimed for the young people and centered on theater as a means of the social inclusion of young people with special needs and/or less opportunities. Apart from this, the beneficiary educators will enhance their confidence in escorting young people and inciting them to reflect on their own behaviors within society and discuss some social questions which are difficult to tackle even now in Europe.
These questions have to do with inclusion, integration, intercultural dialog, radicalization of islamophobia. The educators in hand will get a better training and will act hence as multipliers of quality initiatives for the benefit of the young people of their local communities and beyond.
At the closing of this project, the beneficiaries will have developed precious competences which can form a compound pedagogical tool. They will also be given files with suggested activities which are useful to the educators who wish to engage in this kind of social action.
