With project activities we aim to achieve first of all awareness, knowledge and understanding of Human rights, human rights protection and violation, hate speech and discrimination as human right violations but also to present different forms of participatory theatre as a way to empower youth to fight social injustice and stand up for human rights. Through the project participants will learn different concepts related to human rights, discrimination and hate speech, distinguish between the concepts, to detect human rights violations and thus to be more effective in counteracting hate speech and discrimination.
The project will also be raising awareness on the causes of hate speech and discrimination as well as:
– Understanding the notions of human rights; learning about human rights organizations, important documents, strategies and policies protecting human rights.
– Ability to recognize violations of human rights;
– Ability to protect, promote and protect human rights
Trough the participatory theatre approaches we will tackle the issues of Human rights violations and empower youth to stand up for those rights. During the exchange the groups will explore and understand better human rights, the reasons and effect of discrimination, will understand what hate speech and social injustice are, but most of all will get empowered to not be only audience but spectators. Why theatre. By working through theatre, both performers and spectators can engage difficult questions in a safe space. Theatre is also an ideal instrument to give witness to human rights violations. It is also an excellent tool for education and awareness raising and most of all for empowering people to stand up for human rights. The main objectives of the project proposal are: -To encourage understanding and knowledge of young people about Human rights and human rights violations
– To raise awareness among young people about discrimination, hate speech and cyberbullying as human rights violations
