Forum theater is a set of theatrical techniques, changing the position of the learners from observers to active participants, encouraging them to engage in dialogue on the issues, affecting them. In role-playing games, they recreate a real - familiar or imaginary situation, consider the problem from different points of view (victim, bully, observer, etc.). In this way, they develop a deeper understanding of the situation and those affected and the opportunity to find a solution.
For the first two days, all participants were randomly divided into three mixed groups. Surprising interactive tasks melted all the ice, they built sympathy and gained trust in each other. The atmosphere in the camp became warm, caring, creative. Translated into the language of the theater, dry administrative articles and paragraphs turned into emotional discussions, interesting frozen statues or exciting short sands.
In the answers to the question from the initial survey "What made the strongest impression on you during the training??”, we read:
- that we learn important things, which can happen to us in real life in the form of a game
