“All inclusive – Applying Artistic Theatre Methods in Youth Work with Handicapped or Disadvantaged Youth” is a youth exchange inside the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. The project intends to deliver a model for future school-focused activities of our partners. Participating teamers of the youth exchange will learn to design own workshops. They will learn to implement their knowledge as facilitators under the guidance of experienced theatre trainers and put a theatre play on stage with an international youth group that is consisting of impaired and non-impaired youth. Participating youth will learn body oriented and artistic theatre methods, while also finding new ways of expressing themselves, becoming more self-confident and comfortable in their bodies. Main objective is for the participating youth to discover a new level of cooperation and mutual understanding of disadvantaged and non-impaired youth and new forms of communication in a joint activity. The project approaches also the inclusion of non-foreign-language speakers. Participants will organise and perform their own play based on the novel “Animal Farm” of George Orwell using self-designed materials and multi-lingual approaches. Participating organisations on the other side are planning to promote this model of theatre techniques to implement further projects of theatre plays in cooperation with other institutions in their countries.
