Apply Theatre, Change Life“ project started in October 2010. It is a one year education program in the area of Applied theatre for  students of Faculty for special education and rehabilitation (FASPER) in Belgrade. The project focuses on the students of three departments: 1. special education and rehabilitation of persons with hearing impairment, 2. special education and rehabilitation of persons with difficulties in mental development and 3. Prevention and treatment of behavior disorders; as well as on the young people from three Belgrade institutions: School for persons with hearing impairment „Stefan Decanski“, Institute for education of children and youth and Center for children and youth with difficulties in mental development „Sremcica“. During collective work at drama workshops, the participants will be going through a process of exchange, support, creative expression, personal development, research and moving the limits of their own abilities, and together they will be creating a performance.

The aims of the project are:

  1. to introduce to FASPER students an innovative methodology which can be a valuable tool in the future practice of special pedagogues and their work with sensitive groups
