CLICK: Arts education and critical social dialogue within global youth work practice


Abstract

This article discusses CLICK, a collaborative theatre project between the Mess Up The Mess Theatre Company in Wales, the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, the Australian Theatre for Young People, and Inspired Productions in New Zealand. This case study demonstrates the value of using arts education to bring together young people from multiple countries across the world through the use of social media and theatre for development work, and to explore issues of diversity and identity through Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship (ESDGC). This article will explore the use of social media within arts education and global youth work practice to promote critical social dialogue around sensitive issues as a catalyst for positive social change.

Keywords: GLOBAL YOUTH WORK, EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP, THEATRE FOR DEVELOPMENT, SOCIAL MEDIA
