The “Theatre for Peace – Connect.Create.Transform” project by the Centre for Communication Training aims to mobilise youth through improvisational theatre to counter narratives of hate and separation following the Easter Sunday attacks in Sri Lanka. Through residential training, 60 young people are engaged in a process of self-transformation that encourages understanding and provides space for building bridges across divides. The trained youth will then be supported to implement 20 community-level activities to share their experiences, as well as encourage community action for peacebuilding
Project Goal: To contribute to post-war reconciliation processes by empowering partners/ target groups with potential for outreach with an improved understanding of Pluralistic Values, Conflict Transformation and Conflict Mitigation.
