Cultural Association Orma Fluens
(Italy), along with the Department of
Arts and Sciences of Performance, "Sapienza" University of Rome,
is preparing a project proposal for the EU
Programme "Youth in Action”.
The project will be a Partnership Building Activity focused on the
preparation of a subsequent larger project on Theatre as a Social Tool
to be presented as a proposition for other projects (ex. EU Culture Programme, YIA, Citizenship etc.).
We are preparing a project to promote and develop the practice of Social
Theatre creating a stable network, gathering examples of good practices,
informing people about its aims, and educating a new generation of Social
The group of delegates participating in the PBA will gather in Italy to
work on the following specific topics:
1. Design a European Network of Social Theatre
Organizations (Social Theatre Network): Despite Social Theatre experiences are carried out in many countries,
its practices are rather isolated and disconnected.
2. Create an archive and a theoretical reflection on good
Social Theatre practices:
Understanding how, where, and when Social Theatre gives its best results it is
crucial for its development. Theoretical understanding of Social Theatre
methodologies has been poorly developed during the years.
3. Spreading information and education of Social Theatre
Trainers: Usually Social
Theatre projects are carried out by Theatre Artists lacking knowledge of Social
work or by Social workers with poor knowledge of Theatre techniques and
methodologies. A central aim of this meeting (and of the subsequent Culture
project) will be to inform people about Social Theatre aims, methodologies and
potentials, creating events (performances, seminars, training courses,
festivals) and specialist courses (University Masters, Schools).
The delegates will be invited to work together in Italy for a 5-days intensive work, according to their individual
skills, to develop partnerships and a project to be presented at the following
Culture Programme deadline.
We would like to invite you to join us as partners for this stimulating
networking opportunity. The project will be presented to European Commission
before February 1st, therefore, the deadline
to establish the partnership is January 1st, 2010. If you are
interested in joining, please send us all the information about your
organization (name, country, address, contact information, website, contact
person) along with a short description (5 lines) including general aims and
activities, and a Curriculum of the association, to http://firstname.lastname@example.org
