We are currently hosting “the 4th generation” of Nyitott Kör volunteers, but this year we have increased the group in terms of numbers: for the first time we are working with a group of six volunteers! Sounds a lot, doesn’ it?
The name of the project is TETT: Theatre in Education for Training Tolerance; we feel this title summarizes most things we create together in and outside of the team: training, education, theatre, and tolerance. The latter is essential if you imagine six young people living and working together for 12 months, all of them from different countries, with different cultural and professional backgrounds!
So what do we do?
As any spiritual community, we would like to distribute and multiplicate our way of thinking, spreading the word of DiE and TiE. If we consider drama pedagogy a missionary work, then what we do is training converters, who will take our methods and techniques and infect as many children, young people and anyhow disadvantaged groups as possible with it throughout Portugal, Spain, Croatia, Serbia, Ukraine, and Russia, and who-knows-where-else.
