“it could be me – it could be you”

an awareness raising project on refugees and human rights
using theatre/drama techniques

"PASSAGES" - a game/ role-play
workshops for students, teachers, trainers/facilitators

The “Passages” is a simulation game of personal experience by UNHCR allowing participants to experience the events and situations that refugees face in their attempt to find safe haven in a different country.
The game “Passages”encourages the participants to…
Experience the difficulties that the refugees face upon leaving their country for an uncertain future
Perceive the causes and the consequences of uprooting, as well as the succession of events that drive the refugees to leave for another country
Adopt an accepting stance toward the refugees and to think of possible solutions to their problems, with special regard to their integration in the country of immunity
Get mobilized so that, in turn, they share their awareness in favor of the refugees with their social surroundings (friends, family, local community)
The “Passages” manual is available -for free- in print and online.
From 2016, the “Passages” were integrated in the “it could be me – it could be you” project and are being implemented in cooperation with the Hellenic Theatre/Drama & Education Network.

The game is suitable for people older than 13-14 years and could be performed for students at school with the coordination-facilitation of the UNHCR and the Project’s trained trainers. Duration 2.5 hours. Requirement: at least one of the school’s teachers must have already participated in the game. Applications: the interested teachers must send an application with the consent of the school’s principal, at humanrights@theatroedu.gr in care of Mrs.Yanna Papadopoulou.
Because of the large number of requests priority will be given to the members of the Hellenic Theatre/Drama & Education Network.
