Women Performing Europe – The Magdalena Project Across Borders
Erasmus + project
Partners PROTAGON – FREUNDE UND FOERDERER FREIER THEATERAKTION
Stowarzyszenie Grupa Artystyczna TERAZ POLIŻ
Women Performing Europe – The Magdalena Project Across Borders is a European Eramus+ partnership involving four organisations: Protagon – Freunde und Foerderer Freier Theateraktion from Germany, Teatro Nucleo from Italy, Stowarzyszenie Grupa Artystyczna Teraz Poliz from Poland, and Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium from Denmark, with diverse expertise in adults civic education, committed to empowering disadvantaged.
The participants of the project will go through a capacity building programme created by the project to train new ways of self-expression (learners) and methods to stimulate active citizenship (trainers), working with theatre, role-playing and situational games, discussion events with (local) politicians, world café, decolonial cultural dance, creative writing, and more.
The activities take place within the context of cultural events, festivals, or meetings. Women have the responsibility of proposing new ways of being in the world, based on diversity of opinion, culture and civic education. The project aims to encourage women to position themselves in the face of social conflicts, extremist nationalism, pandemics, discrimination, racism, etc.
Four transnational meetings and training activities will be organised in the frame of project, as well as research, discussions, and documentation with statements of invited artists from The Magdalena Project Network guided by the intersectional feminist perspective which aims to invest in how aspects of one’s social and political identities (gender, race, class, sexuality, ability, etc.) might combine to create specific modes of discrimination.
