PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Performance, Rights and Belonging

Cluj, Romania, July 20-23

A Theatre Workshop about Education and Children’s Rights

with young Roma, some of whom are denied basic rights in EU Romania

The workshop will use Forum Theatre methods to initiate a dialogue with young Roma and non-Roma students about education, rights and belonging. Many young Roma continue face institutionalized racism and are made to attend schools for students with disabilities in countries across East Central Europe, most of them EU member states.

At the end of the week-long workshop (16-23 July), a public performance and forum theatre session will seek to open up the dialogue with local authorities, parents and teachers from Cluj.

Five Visiting Correspondents are welcome to the event.


 
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

This conference will be curated with no open call for Presenters + Performers, but there will be a call for Local and Visiting Correspondents - scholars, artists or activists who have an interest in the topic who would like to attend as part of their own research agenda, participate, then present a creative, scholarly or other sort of response that reads the conference conversations through the lens of their own research on the LOG. Call for Local and Visiting Correspondents available here.
