About
If you believe everyone has an immense creative potential to trigger change in everyday life, then JOIN US, this performance is for you.
If the audience intervenes Tuesday 19th night, things could take a new turn for our Children.
This event is meant to launch 2 shows performed by youth groups from Malindi and Nakuru. Stories of violence and discrimination against children, which the audience will transform to stories of respect and hope.
You don’t need to be an actor/actress, nor will you be forced to intervene. Those willing will have the opportunity to try on stage their ideas.
This event is the result of a participatory theatre training, organized by CISP http://www.cisp-ngo.org in collaboration with Parteciparte http://www.parteciparte under a UNICEF funded project.

Participatory theatre is a form of theatre in which the audience interacts with the performers and presenters, joins in with the action and sparks change. This and other forms of creative expression create a safe space for personal and group empowerment and engagement. It encourages speaking up, taking the stage, being a leader, expressing one’s opinion and views, taking initiative, reflecting and finding creative solutions together, realizing that change is possible at any given time of the story. That we have a choice. Connecting with other people and participating in creating a new reality that is beneficial for all is amongst the most empowering, healing and fun experiences.
CISP has been investing a lot to promote culture and art as tools for change (peace, non violence, protection, etc.).

Welcome. KARIBU.
