social inclusion through performance art
The workshops will be focused on games-like activities, that will help the participants develop new skills in a fun and creative way. The primary goal is to develop workshops and activities for both Ukrainian and Romanian participants that can help create common spaces, a common language and generally demonstrate that unity through diversity can prevail. Culture as a means to unite, help heal trauma and help grow inner strength and fortitude has been proven time and time again.
Within the societal fabric it seems to be the key type of activity when tackling issues as: social disparities, language and cultural barriers, hate-speech, antisemitism and gender equality. SusInima Plays workshops start from the 1st of November 2022 and will be held daily in designated spaces for designated groups.
The content has been closely developed by our team of professional artist, teachers and psychologists that have been working with the targeted groups for the past 6 months. The workshops will include participants of all ages but will start with children aged 4-18.
They will be divided in age appropriate groups.
It is a 3 stage concept that implies developmental stages taking places over the extent of 27 of months.
The result will be cultural products based on performance arts and the development of a network of facilitators that can uphold and grow the concept for the future.
