Acting Diversity is a project involving 3 artistic and cultural organisations in Italy, Palestine and the United Kingdom, but also asylum seekers, political refugees, migrants and young from all over the world. It has to do with theatre as an important cultural, educational and social tool, apt to foster intercultural dialogue and the active promotion of diversity, towards the development of a more cohesive, democratic and inclusive society.

The project includes intercultural theatre workshops with asylum seekers, political refugees, migrants and young. It also includes producing 2 final shows on intercultural issues, racism, migration, stereotypes about the “stranger”, citizenship and rights.

The aim of the project is to contribute to intercultural dialogue and to the promotion of diversity as tool for social cohesion, cooperation and inclusion, supporting artistic exchanges and cultural creativity, also through community mobilization and participation, to strengthen citizenship and rights. It aims also to fight stereotypes on migrants in public opinion; to promote dissemination of theatre culture and art as working tools to foster intercultural dialogue; to improve cooperation and exchange of artistic methods and practices in non-formal education in the Euro-Med Region also supporting transnational mobility of cultural workers.
