Caravan Next: the forthcoming events
Caravan Next: the forthcoming events! 30 grand Social Community Theatre events will take place very soon!
Caravan Next is a grand European Social Community Theatre project with 13 different artistic partners from 11 different countries. From 2015 till 2019 Caravan Next connects professional artists with communities and local citizens in a huge network of European theatre organisations and cultural institutions.
Furthermore 5 international conferences will be held in order to share knowledge and experience in United States, Uruguay, Taiwan, Australia and Morocco as well as in 5 countries within Europe.
The concept of Social Community Theatre is to use art and theatre to make community empowerment. It is an art form that expands the traditional concept of both “theatre” and ”audience” and rethinks theatre in a process of social and artistic meetings between local citizens and professional artists.
In Social Community Theatre, the theatre process is made with and in the local community. Artists and citizens meet in a process of mutual exchange and the nal performance or artistic creation is the result of the participators from the community being both co-actors and co-authors. Thus, Social Community Theatre is also a way to get into contact with the present challenges of the different communities and a way to establish new networks within the community.
Social Community Theatre often takes place outside regular theatres and includes activities such as parades, theatre festivals, square performances, workshops, visual installations in town, cultural barters and other forms of artistic creations.
30 grand Social Community Theatre events will take place in 16 different European cities. See more here.
