Our views: performing coexistence in secondary schools of the Basque Country (Spain)
Research in Drama Education: The Journal of Applied Theatre and Performance : (2021)
This research analyses the impact of an applied theatre programme (Our Views) on fostering coexistence in four secondary schools in the Basque Country (Spain). Qualitative study reflected a positive impact on participants’ socioemotional skills. Improved relationships are among the positive effects detected in group participants’ lives. The project has opened a space for reflection on coexistence among adolescents and for raising students’ awareness concerning issues that they sometimes face. It has facilitated some changes in students’ behaviours in their immediate contexts. This research provides evidence of Our Views programme’s effectiveness in promoting positive coexistence among secondary school students.
