The Theatre of the Oppressed has proved for decades its effectiveness addressing the social and psychological effects associated with social vulnerability.

Based on the methodologies developed by A. Boal and P. Freire, this education method has proved to be a powerful tool to build resilience, that is, the ability of an individual, community or country to cope, adapt and quickly recover from stress and shocks caused by a disaster, violence or conflict.

The main target users of the project products are adult teachers, trainers, tutors and counsellors.
