In this intervention young artists in Bolivia develop an artistic model to fight gender-based injustices and violence. By raising awareness about violent relationships through creative work, young artists will become able to assume the role as protagonists. In the process of creating an artistic performance the young people involved become aware of the wide range of problems related to gender-based violence and they gain tools to read and prevent violent situations. With the performance they tour to schools in socially disadvantaged parts of the metropolitan area of La Paz and broaden the knowledge and discussion out to thousands of children and adolescents who become aware of the need to act to achieve change. The methodologies used in the intervention will create a model for how to use theatre to engage young people in the fight against gender violence and in other right based topics.
