The first national weekend training course “Facing stereotypes and prejudices through interactive theater method Stop and Act” took place from 7th to 9th of June in Banja E Pejes/Pecka Banja and gathered 20 young people from Kosovo, eager to learn more about prejudices, stereotypes and discrimination and take an active role in awareness raising activities that would help overcoming discrimination on many existing aspects.

The training was realized in 3 main phases, using non-formal learning methods:

  • defining and understanding stereotypes, prejudices, discrimination & how they interact & function in relation to one another
  • exploring various courses of action against discrimination
  • introducing Stop and Act theatre method and producing educational plays


As a final result, participants designed and performed several educational theatre plays emphasizing the issues of racial, institutional and gender discrimination.

This training course is organized by GAIA, within the frame of ‘Regional Youth Action against Discrimination and Militarism’.
