The goal of the project is to support young people gain different perspectives/inspiration/knowledge about human rights and related topics, such as social inclusion, participation, and diversity, to change attitudes and create inclusive social platforms for young people with the help of art, especially theatre, cinema, and music.
The direct beneficiaries of the project are:
- General public of Luxembourg but taking into consideration the places where the performances will take place the target can be more specific. For example: the performance in front of the Forum Geesseknäppchen (Forum Campus Geesseknäppchen) during the lunch break of the lycees will target the young people/students of the lycees; the performance in front of the Belval Plaza (Esch-sur-Alzette) will target students and the stuff of the university; the performances in front of the Gare Central and in Kirchberg will target wider representatives of the society.
- young people coming from EU different countries through the European Solidarity Corps (project is approved for 10 volunteers),
- The group of young people (artists, representatives of the social minorities, refugees) that will be involved in the artistic team of the project.
The indirect beneficiaries of the project are:
- the families of the participants and visitors of the Final performances and Exhibition. By free artistic expressions the participants will change the way people see refugees and accept them into community life. It will allow the visitors to see the difficulties and obstacles the refugees face due to their ethnicity or religious belonging during their everyday life.
Creative activities and self-expression can so often seem off-limits to many people – and this includes the world of theatre equally. At the same time, traditional and not traditional theatre (immersive theatre or interactive theatre) is being used extensively in non-formal education for promotion of human rights. Human rights practitioners prove that theatre is used as a powerful tool in human rights work and theatre exercises and tools have been particularly useful for groups and communities that are looking to solve their problems. Yet, despite this, young refugees are usually limited in their possibilities to use this powerful tool.
