The project in a few words

‘Act it Out!’ is a course organized by Hang-Kép Egyesület in Debrecen (Hungary) in September and October 2023, focused on using the technique of the theatre of the oppressed to work on social inclusion.

Theatre of the Oppressed is a collective rehearsal for reality. The main idea of this methodology is to make people experience and understand how a change of an attitude, behaviour or thinking pattern can have a powerful significant effect on their life as well as lives of people around them.

The participants will get to know the methods of the Theatre of the Oppressed (mostly Image Theatre, Forum Theatre and Newspaper Theatre) and will learn how to use them in their respective communities to initiate social change and help the inclusion of vulnerable groups of youngsters.

  • To increase the capacity of youth work sector to raise participation and involvement of young people in social processes and change;
