Trip to Aarhus – Theatre, workshops and exhibitions to prevent Gender-Based violence

From 9 to 13 March, the almost 80 boys and girls that participated in the DECIDES Europe artistic workshops travelled to Aarhus for the project’s third and last exchange activity. During one week, students from the Bernat Metge Institute in Barcelona, El Brot in Madrid (Spain), the Matei Basarab College in Bucharest (Romania) and the Eriksminde Efterskole in Aarhus (Denmark) shared experiences and opinions about their work on the issue of gender-based violence prevention.

Many activities were organized during the week: debates, workshops, a visit to the Kvindemuseet i Danmark (Danish Women’s Museum) and even a visit to Eriksminde Efterskole to see how the students’ daily life. Two of these activities were highlighted: the “Sexism also parties” forum theatre performance by the girls and boys of Barcelona; and the exhibition “STOP! – Youngsters’ perspectives on Gender-Based violence” at the Women’s Museum by the Danish students.

Congratulations to all of them for a job well done!
