The objectives of this program is to implement a one and a half week workshop and follow-on performances in East India and partner countries using theater and youth advocacy to promote multi-culturalism, pluralism, and respect for diversity.
Based on funding availability, PAS Kolkata will support a project entitled “Strengthening Youth Voices: Promoting Diversity, Peace, and Inclusion.” The goal of the project is to use theater to foster youth partnerships and leadership to promote peace and stability in the South Asia region, specifically in India, Bangladesh, and Nepal. PAS Kolkata’s previous iterations of performative storytelling workshops held at the American Center and funded by the Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) have created models of community building based on the themes of gender and empowerment. Building on this, the project will train participants to use the participatory theater model with large public audiences on the themes of diversity, inclusion, and non-violence.
