This project is a partnership between the Association du Centre de Beaumotte and the Association « Le Lieu » who are professional in the Theater of the Oppressed ( Augusto Boal technique) . As this is our goal we work mainly with the youth as a team together for an effective education. The methods of the Theatre of the Oppressed were developed by Augusto Boal in Latin America in the 1970’s. His goal was to draw visibility to social and political conflicts by giving a voice to marginalizedgroups who were facing oppression under totalitarian regimes of the time . We wish through this project to give teenagers the opportunity to stage their difficulties, their fights and their doubts in order to find solutions to european difficulties. A final show, in front of the villagers, will be planned.
Participants will be accommodated at the centre of the village, in the town hall. The place to
sleep is a common room with camp beds. They will sleep in collectivity on campbeds (girls and
boys separated). There will be available bathroom and kitchen. Because of the situation (in a rural area) WIFI access will be limited. Everybody will take part in the collective life: making of the meals, cleaning and preparing activities for the night.
In a dynamic of popular and non-formal education, you will be able “to make and to live together” and each one of you will be responsible for the daily life of the group.
This tool is very important for a real encounter: youngsters will elaborate their own menus, cook in groups, do the cleaning, and organize their activities. The exchanges at cooking time, the household, and the leisure activities will be the base of interculturality of this project.
The Center of Beaumotte is an association of youth and popular education created in 1979. Our
association works to support and to teach youngsters, specially those with less opportunities. By
proposing a place of exchange and sharing where each one can take time to rebuild himself, and can learn how to assume responsibility of himself. Our center is an alternative place based on co-education (intercultural, intergenerational, of gender and beliefs) hence, on the collective life and the responsibilisation of the people in charge of welcoming. For 35 years, we have set up international projects convinced of the wealth these bring.
