We believe that every community consists of different identities. Identities that enrich and strengthen the community, as long as you can and may celebrate this diversity. To make this diversity more visible, we initiated a bottom-up project in Casablanca to put storytelling on the (cultural and social) agenda of the city.
In the 7-day storytelling program Casablanca Stories we trained (future) youth trainers with our Share to Connect method. They learned to build bridges between different identities and to make communities more resilient, by encouraging mutual respect and interest. Eventually they made a performance in combination with workshops for younger residents of two cities, in which research into identity as a city resident was central. (Gender) equality was a key point in this.
