Tamasha YESPeace Workshop in Lahore

Lahore, Pakistan | July 31 – August 5, 2017

YESPeace Pakistan’s partner The Little Art organised the Tamasha YESPeace Workshop in Lahore from the 31st July to 5th August, 2017. More than 32 young adults, aged between 16 and 25, participated in the workshop including 5 participants from Quetta, 1 from Islamabad, 1 from Sheikhupura, 1 from Taxila and 24 from Lahore.

The workshop assisted in development of the participants’ skills to understand, analyse, facilitate and lead conflict resolution activities, while engaging audiences in their home communities for dialogue on key issues. The aim was to discuss peace, conflict resolution, gender equality, cross-cultural understanding and diversity using the power of theatre and performing arts, the core strength of the YESPeace Pakistan Partner, The Little Art.

One of the participants Komal Bhatti shared “Initially when I signed up for this workshop I thought it will be related to just theatre but over here we didn’t only learn how to perform on the stage, in fact we learnt how to perform in our life. In this workshop, they introduced the UNESCO MGIEP Curriculum and conducted an activity which helped us to explore our self as a human being.”

This workshop is the first of a series of six workshops being organised by the YESPeace Pakistan partners (i.e The Little Art, College of Youth Activism and Development (CYAAD) and Pakistan Youth Alliance (PYA)) in various cities and towns of Pakistan. The partners will be collaborating to provide access to a diverse set of skills to young people all over Pakistan. The workshops will be held between July and October, 2017 and will culminate in a Youth Camp and Fest towards the end of the year.
