About The Project
Creative Youth Boot Camp galvanizes young individuals from over 200 ethnic groups in Nigeria to co-create, using performing arts as a tool to confront social issues such as gender inequality, lack of inclusion, xenophobia, and violent extremism, plaguing the development of women, youths, and young people with disabilities. By deploying a human-centered approach called “reflection sessions”, young creatives are equipped with tools to unpack issues that threaten their existence. They share real-life experiences and their truth within a “circle of trust” free from judgement. Their stories form the basis for the scripts that are developed for the theatre performances and radio drama series that they will produce collectively. The project aims to build a movement where pluralism and global citizenship thrive.
