Inclusion in ACTion
Inclusion in ACTion is 3-phase training program with the aim to provide Social Theatre and Body Expression tools and facilitation skills to youth workers directly working with young people at risk of social exclusion, encouraging them to diversify methodologies and strategies in the search for their target group’s empowerment and in the boost of real social inclusion.
In the search for inclusion and empowerment tools in youth work, Social Theatre and Body Expression offer an invaluable summary of exercises and dynamics that can help us to identify the social issues and challenges that our target group face, as well as the possible solutions to design and implement social actions. Theatre and movement give voice to the voiceless, and provides an inclusive and safe space that enables people to question stereotypes and prejudices.
The impact is not only visible in the personal sphere of socially challenged youngsters (self-knowledge, self-expression, empowerment and self-esteem) but also in the social self, allowing them to get to know each other and motivating connections with others, accepting and celebrating their differences and respecting diversity in their everyday lives.
Using the inclusive, engaging and universally understandable tools offered by Social Theatre and Body Expression methodologies, we can boost young people’s confidence in their creative potential while fighting against the feeling of exclusion and invisibilization of their needs.
