Our project of the month for July is "ReAct Together - Empowering and including vulnerable groups in to the society through applied drama”, funded under the Active Citizens Fund programme in Cyprus and implemented by Motivation in Arts - MiA.
The main objective of the project is to identify groups of vulnerable young people which are potentially facing social exclusion, and collect data necessary to investigate and evaluate their rights and needs in order to enable their social inclusion and equality. Additionally, the project aims to train and raise awareness of individuals and organisations dealing with vulnerable groups of young people, proposing them a new method of approaching and integrating young people, based on theatre techniques.
As part of the project, live interactive theatre performances took place in Paphos, as well as a roundtable discussion in June 2023 to exchange views between social workers, professionals, volunteers, students and citizens who are involved in the integration of vulnerable groups in Cypriot society. The discussion will be followed by capacity building workshops on using applied theatre as a social tool. Keep track of project activities here.
