We collaborated with The Schools Theater Festival 2017 to ensure participation of some members from Naki One. The festival was preceded with a peace building training camp that ran from the 7th- 12th May 2017. The camp, according to the organizers, was billed as a cultural exchange exercise where students from different schools and backgrounds work with a selected group of youth out of school or in different communities to share experiences, and tell their stories. They worked together with professional directors, music coaches and choreographers to develop their personal stories into theater performances for the festival. The participants in the camp are expected to develop knowledge and skills in team building, dealing with difficult situations, building self esteem, public speaking, to mention but a few.
In 2018, we shall partner with the festival to have more refugee integration themes and participation.
