Medeber Teatro is part of the LiteracyAct project initiated by Erasmus+ which brings together several European partners with the aim of collecting and sharing various pedagogical knowledge and skills. The aim of this project is to develop and implement methods of teaching language to adult migrants, through the medium of theatre, with a view to combating literacy, exchanging culture and learning in order to include migrants in our societies.
Alongside our partners, several workshops and workshops have been carried out online in an effort to share, gather and systematise ideas and information useful to the educational objectives to be achieved. Other activities were developped as a continuation of the project, including Migrant Spectators. In partnership with the association Lire et Ecrire Bruxelles and the Red Cross reception centre in Uccle.
Medeber Teatro has launched Migrant Spectators in Brussels for the 2021-2022 season, based on an initiative set up by our Italian partner ASINITAS. The aim of this project is to create an editorial team composed of adult migrants and anyone else interested in the project, who commit to meeting several times during the school year to see theatre, dance and circus performances during the season. The aim of these meetings is to create exchanges and debates on the themes addressed in the shows and also to reinforce the learning of the French language with a view to the socio-cultural inclusion of migrants through the medium of theatre. The participants are encouraged to take ownership of the urban “theatre” space so that it can become a point of reference in the urban and cultural landscape of their new city. With the participation of the Théâtre Les Tanneurs where the various meetings will take place.
The results of these meetings are available for reading on LiteracyAct’s blog, the Spectatorship Blog.
