During the program, you can gain an insight into a unique merge of socially engaged art techniques developed by experts throughout years of practicing and teaching within the field of socially engaged arts.

We will reflect on the current social, economic and environmental changes. This is a safe place to process our feelings, thoughts, and experiences related to the topics. Through the arts and Artivism, we will have a tool to express ourselves and get active, conscious participants in the changes in our communities.

The program has three main topics:

  • inclusive societies,
  • equality of all genders,
  • environmental protection and art.

The main connecting theme is artivism,- how people can get involved in art and how art can become a tool for social change.

During the two-week program you can get to know:

  • the world of theater that works in an intimate puppet theatre format, which can be performed in especially small spaces, even in living rooms.
  • how to work with artistic tools and help women and young girls who suffer discrimination.
  • how to cooperate with communities and even educational institutions using environmental education theatre tools.

Besides that, how to initiate intercultural and intersectoral dialogue in society, encouraging the creativity of young people through art education, production of cultural content and improvement of public policies in the field of culture and youth.

The structure of the program is workshop-based, allowing participants to not only learn the theory but experiment with and try out practical skills and techniques as well.

Throughout the Academy you will not only be able to expand your professional skillset, but you will further get the chance to ge to know other enthusiastic experts, and as such become a part of a wide, supporting professional network.
