About the Project

“Civil Stage” is a multi-phase educational project aiming to use performative arts in youth work based on the pedagogic principles of human rights education.

The objective is to use improv and forum theater for building readiness to respond the needs of target youth groups. “Theater of the oppressed” has proven to be a successful tool for using creativity to address sensitive issues and challenges and develop critical consciousness.

The Objectives of the Training are:

  • To understand and apply facilitation of human rights education in the reality of the youth workers;
  • To gain experience in non-formal education as an inspiration for facilitation;
  • To create new improv theatre methods for daily facilitation by the youth workers;
  • To equip youth workers with forum theatre skills to facilitate human rights education activities to increase active citizenship of youth;
  • To develop, implement and evaluate action plans by the participants in their organisation’s context;
  • To develop and implement spin-off projects and follow-up activities at a local,  regional and European level

Requirements for the Participants:

  • individuals, volunteers or employed youth workers who have clear and regular professional contact with young people;
  • have some experience with facilitation/trainings in the field of youth work;
  • have first experience or are motivated to learn more about human rights education (HRE);
  • are keen on getting more non-formal education, intercultural, theatre and facilitation skills as well as develop their skills, knowledge and attitude;
  • are committed to be actively involved during all phases of the project;
  • be available for all the phases of the project;
