Our Purpose as Promoters of Theatre of the Oppressed and Participatory Arts
We strive for a world where there is a space for exploring, learning and understanding each other. We believe in passion (expression of the individual) and compassion (connection to others) as core life-giving forces. We believe in working together for social justice. We strive to go deeper into social issues and challenge the current status-quo.
We want to create and facilitate the acting space (this is why we are called PLEK, translating into 'the space') where these values are always at the center of all our activities.
We are playful, curious, passionate and energetic about facilitating dialogue and unfolding new perspectives to create a healthier and stronger world.
