Presto le informazioni e i materiali in italiano
The idea of ‘doing theatre’ as a means to support different disadvantaged groups at risk of social exclusion is quite ancient.
Good practices are spread all over Europe, showing the potential, effectiveness and transversal applicability of this methodology, which can be successfully applied to any age group and adapted to several targets affected by different kinds of social disease. In a few words, this educational approach is based upon the idea of developing key competences and skills, increasing an individual’s sense of initiative, self-confidence and self-esteem by practising theatre, thus facilitating social inclusion.
The seven partners in this project are Oltre le Parole, Teatro Civile, Italy (lead); Smashing Times, Ireland;
Comunità San Patrignano Società Cooperativa Sociale, Italy;
Bielskie Stowarzyszenie Artystyczne Teatr Grodzki, Poland;
PELE, Associação Social e Cultural, Portugal;
Magenta Consultoria Projects SL, Spain;
ProSoc – Drustvo Za Implementacijo Projektov in Razvoj Socialnega Podjetnistva, Slovenia
RomaTre University, Italy
In particular, the Specific objectives of the project are:
- To promote the diffusion of Social and Community Theatre as an effective means for the social inclusion of disadvantaged adult learners
- To strengthen cooperation and facilitate the exchange of good practices in the field of non-formal education among partner organisations
- To jointly develop and validate a training course addressed to STO
- To boost a process for the recognition and standardisation at EU level of the SOCIAL THEATRE OPERATOR (STO), a new professional figure defined in terms of knowledge, competences and skills
The main target groups addressed by the project can be identified at three levels:
- Non-profit organisations supporting different groups of disadvantaged adult learners working
- Professional adult educators and volunteers working in the field of Social and Community Theatre
- Groups at high risk of social exclusion and segregation such as migrants, disabled, prisoners, ethnic minorities, former drug addicts, NEETs, etc.
