IMPACT Guidelines for social integration of migrants and local citizens through theatre

This Guideline includes the results of IMPACT – Inclusion Matters! using Performing Arts towards Cohesion and Tolerance project and aims to allow the design and implementation of workshops for social integration of migrants and local citizens, through the use of theatre and performing arts.

Guidelines have been presented during the final Conference, which took place on May 20th, gathering representatives of civil society organisations, theatre and other institutions involved in the project area.

Among keynote speakers:

  • Ib Jespersgaard – Municipality of Vejle
  • Elizabeth Gregersen – Project coordinator
  • Antonella Valmorbida – ALDA Secretary General

The project made it possible to develop and test in different local contexts an innovative methodology born from the contribution of artists active in the field of social inclusion through arts and coming from seven different countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Denmark, Italy, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia.
