Content and aim Edit

Theater of the Oppressed is an innovative form of educational method, which is designed for the people, who don't have any experiences in acting or expressing themselves on the stage. As an educational method can be used not only among homogeneous youngsters groups, but also in the groups consisting from individuals with different cultural, religious and socio-economic backgrounds. It enables to clarify values, develop social skills and solve the problems through invented characters and also to step in their shoes and see ones personal situation or the situation of particular group of persons from the other perspective. Furthermore Theater of Oppressed techniques invites critical thinking and the dialogue between the participants. It is about analyzing rather than giving answers. It is also about “acting” (taking action) rather than just talking. With Theater of Oppressed method participants can and often do discover empowering solutions to their own struggles. And they have a good time doing it. Learning and implementing the high adaptable techniques of the Theater of the Oppressed techniques can be immediately applied by youth workers, social workers, could work as an potential start of building and creating an environment of trust and mutual respect not only on the stage, but in everyday life.

The TC “Theater of the Oppressed: Implementation of forum theater methods in the youth work to fight youth unemployment“ focuses on the topic of youth unemployment, which according to the statistics, is increasing every year across Europe. Youngsters all over Europe is at high risk of social exclusion and poverty, especially during the transition from education to employment. There are many reasons behind the problem of youth unemployment, for example: lack of particular skills, wrong educational system, mismatches between education and needs in labor market, lack of self confidence, lack of self esteem, and of course structural lack of working places.The activities organized by youth workers and educators are very important in smoothening the transition between education and employment for youth, as well as the key importance of employers recognizing the competences that young people acquire through these activities and volunteering in youth organizations.

With the help of the Theater of Oppressed methods, we will simulate different situations, which will come directly from the participants’ personal and collective life experience. By doing it, we will discuss the problem and will search for an answer in creative way. During these TCs participants will analyze the role of youth work in giving youth better opportunities on labor market, they will explore potential and limitations of youth work towards the topic of unemployment, participants will share their experiences and realities fron their home countries and also together search for the ways how to improve young people’s opportunities in their professional life and how to raise the potential of youth work for supporting youngsters in this process. The main aim of the proposed TCs is to equip participants, active youth workers, with innovative tools and methods of the Theater of Oppressed andd to encourage them to create a multiplying effect in they local community and among their target groups by developing common intercultural projects under the Erasmus + program and putting the newly acquired knowledge, skills and attitudes into practice.
