“Stories of Human Rights” is an art project using “Theater of the oppressed” to raise awareness about human rights. Theater of the oppressed is a method of political theater descendent from Brazil. It will be used as an approach to reflect about human rights and to form a base for engagement of youth in their communities. The goal of using this method is to explore the topic in a new manner in order to find new solutions to a already long existing issue. This project aims to develop an understanding of human rights values, the appreciation of differences, and becoming active contributors to an inclusive society where there is a respect for human dignity and cultural diversity.
The Stories of human Rights exchange will bring together 26 young people from three different countries (Russia, Ukraine and Germany) between 18 and 26 years old.
