Education

Education is a key theme of many CTS projects.

In Kosovo the focus was on civic education in formal/informal educational settings. In Rwanda, Kenya and Nepal the focus was on influencing national curriculum frameworks and the integration of arts-based methodologies as a means to express and reflect on experiences and build capacity as agents of change. In South Africa, ‘The Changemakers’ introduced an education programme, drawing on historical traumas, to encourage the new generations to become active leaders of change and to resist extremism. We  have also worked to support community-based organisations to use participatory arts as a tool for youth-leadership development
