This episode of Interlace PODCAST is the first one addressing the adult education field. We do this by introducing the RIOTE2 project – Rural Inclusive Outdoor Theatre Education: Street theatre education methodology and network cooperation model in rural environment. The project is of high relevance for the scope of this podcast since it addresses our two main objectives: international perspectives on education and culture.
The project is based on a knowledge and skills exchange between performing arts- organisations, which provide adult education through outdoor theatre, physical theatre or other cultural and adult educational practices in rural settlements. The project tried to answer the question: ‘How do we develop the reach of our adult educational activity as arts organisation, so that we can connect with more of our target group?’
Outdoor performing adult education can revitalize culture in socially marginalized environments with proposing: dialogue approach; critical sociology by revealing social problems; interactive cultural exchange; collective education; development of multiple intelligence; trigger the visualization of social change; empowerment of the community; strong pedagogical aspect; collaborative process.
Geza Pinter from Sinum Theatre and RIOTE project manager tells us more about it in the interview.
