Theater for Inclusion is a project of community intervention based on theater and participatory art, directed by París Uki.
It was arose and developed naturally from Colectivo Improspañol (2012-2017. Vienna, Austria) and institutionally supported by ART KO LÈ Verein (2015-2017).
We want to impulse and rethink personal and social transformation through Community Theater (community cultural development). We dream of building a Learning Community based on an inclusive and cooperative culture.
We open several processes in three levels of intervention:
- To deepen into our roots_ Research-action processes.
- To take care the core seed_ Workshops and creative processes within communities.
- To share the experience _ Seminars and trainings within professional teams.
Theater for Inclusion Team.
We are an international and multilingual collective of people with diverse artistic experiences, and diverse social and professional backgrounds. Thank for each person who participates the group is modified and enriched. We learn from each other and grow together: creating new ways of relation and mutual support.
In 2016 we promoted every month concrete and sustained actions in Vienna, into the frame of the project “Walking towards social inclusion”, celebrating “The value of being different” in July 2016 with the first Vienna Social Tour.
In 2017 we moved on with the Social Tour for Inclusion from Cazalla de la Sierra (Sevilla) to Vienna (Austria). And more… Be informed of all our activity in our Blog.
“Over the last years, I have observed how theory contrasts with practice, and how practice finds its way back into theoretical reflection. I enjoy being eclectical and build my own knowledge, I do not identify with any particular discourse, theory or author. However, I do absorb from all of them what seems relevant and resonates with the reality in which I and the persons around me find ourselves.
I would like to use this space for sharing my personal thoughts on the process of social inclusion.
As a researcher and therapist, I have spent more than 15 years delving into theory and analysing the concept of inclusion (as it relates to education). On a personal level, my own migratory background has been a unique opportunity to experience the “other side” of barriers and thus to confront the theory I had learned with the individuals and situations in this context, my own reality as a migrant in Vienna as well as the experience of the individuals in my immediate social circle.
It is now several years of experience working with different groups in workshops offered by Improspañol Viena / Artkolé Association / Theater for Inclusion. It has been uniquely enriching to tackle processes of social inclusion and exclusion from within personal experiences and group dynamics, giving centerstage to coexistence.
I now feel inclusion as more than just a concept, becoming a personal commitment and a shared social responsibility. I would like to share with you, under this premise, my perspective on the (social) process of inclusion”.
We are glad to meet you and collaborate with you and your organization.
