Project summary

Stories from the schoolyard is a project that used theatre to encourage education, personal development and the use of creativity for children living in Ferentari, a ghetto-type neighborhood of Bucharest. In addition, the project aimed at raising public awareness about the marginalization and discrimination issues that these children and their community face. Stories from the Schoolyard represented an opportunity to bring theatre to the service of education, of personal development, as well as to the creation of an artistic project that is capable to raise awareness and address marginalization and discrimination issues in an accessible, fresh and authentic way.
