Smashing Times are delighted to bring to Ireland an international community of partners, artists, educators and activists from across Europe for the European project Arts for Human Rights. This is a major transnational Euopean project exploring questions of how to use creative processes of theatre and new digital technologies to promote learning and awareness-raising in relation to human rights and gender equality across Europe. The aim is to design a new transnational Arts for Human Rights module that educators, teachers and artists can implement with adult learners using creative processes to promote human rights and gender equality and to design a new innovative blended learning ‘Train the Trainers’ training curriculum to train educators, teachers and artists in how to implement the Arts for Human Rights module with Adult learners.
Smashing Times are delighted to be working on this unique project involving contemporary collaborative arts practice, education and learning. Artists, educators and practitioners from across Europe are engaging with diverse groups, using creative processes to promote participation, collaboration and active citizenship.
An international community of artists, practitioners, activists and educators will gather in Dublin for this major event to develop and roll out a series of activities happening across the partnership network in Europe for 2019 and 2020. Activities include workshops, panel discussions, public events and networking opportunities as practitioners come together to share expertise and learning and to explore creative ways to promote the arts for human rights.
