ANAMUH is a registered not-for-profit informal group of young people aimed at establishing and sustaining a space for communitarian dialogue through the use of Theatre and Arts.
We believe in Social Theatre techniques and the enormous potential for positive personal and social transformation that they offer: “Forum Theatre”, “Theatre of the Oppressed”, “Theatre for Living”, based on the inclusive participatory pedagogy of Paulo Freire.
ANAMUH focuses on youth empowerment as a means to inter-communitarian dialogue in order to challenge stereotypes/discrimination, to bridge cultures and to bring positive social transformation within communities and in the general collectivity.
ANAMUH envisions a world where diverse communities know, respect and include each other, and where they grow together creating new ideas, tastes and forms of art on the basis of their own identities and cultures.
We are a group of enthusiast and socially committed young people, artists, theatre practitioners: we believe that Theatre and Arts can make a sustainable positive change within people, in communities, in society.
We periodically organize and facilitate various training courses activities aimed at youth empowerment and inclusion, networking with various partner organizations in Europe, with the aim to share the best practices for youth work, with particular focus on Theatre of the Oppressed and the Freire´s participatory approach and pedagogy.
ANAMUH created and leads the initiative “Home of the Theatre of the Oppressed for Hungary (HOTOH)” with the aim of creating a space of collaboration for the whole Theatre of the Oppressed and Forum Theatre community in Hungary: a possibility for young practitioners to learn from each other and from the most experienced trainers.
We partner with various national and international actors: national and international NGOs, grassroots organizations, community developers active in marginalized communities, institutions, theatre groups, art groups, applied arts networks, educational institutions, universities, on organizational and methodological aspects, for education and training, in formal and non-formal education settings.
