We can receive volunteer anytime in the year.

Due to the type of activities, the long stays are more appropriated and provide rewarding experience from both personal and professionnal point of view. A minimum of 3 months would be ideal but we will be glad to study all serious propositions. We invite all volunteers interested to be part to contact us even if their availability period is shorter o that we think together about more specific tasks.


- Whenever it is possible, you will be more than welcome to be part of our different processes: it is a unique opportunity to understand the reality of the different groups we work with ;
- Opportunities for political and personal training (feminist activities, ...) ;
- Participation in workshops of Theater of the Oppressed.


Everyone



Our methodology is based on The Theater of the Oppressed, created by Augusto Boal during the dictatorship in Brazil, and also based on popular education and arts.

Our fundamental principle: From people, by people, and for people.

People we are working with: women fighting against gender violence, rural and indigenous population, people suffering from HIV, migrants and disabled people.

What we do: long-term processes of empowerment, international processes of multiplication, participatory audits,
training of trainers, social theater in public places in order to create debate, organization of regional encounters, festivals and cultural spaces...

We are part of 2 Latino-American networks: Ma(g)dalenas Teatro de las Oprimidas and RelaTO Red latino americana de Teatro del Oprimido

We have worked with ONUSIDA, Unicef, Hivos and various internationals and locals partners.
