Redefining Crisis: Paths to freedom?


The noble intentions of the Caravan “manifesto” made in 2011 – to build up the theme of “Reviving from Crises” through cultural interventions and artistic performances based on the methodology of community theatre, with the aim of boosting the cultural and social empowerment of local communities in some symbolic places of crises  – gain some further meanings in 2014.

The economy and the human values are running downhill – can we still catch the train? More and more inhabitants of Europe that still had some economic security in 2011 are facing the ubiquitous reality of reaching rock bottom. Is Europe becoming a place of crises?

The artists have to cope with the huge responsibility of being the prophets and nurturers of reinvented values. What and where are the margins of human dignity and survivor?

Who is the man and the woman of 21st Century? The roles are changing, but what are the frustrations of the heritage patterns and their impacts on community? Should we learn to behave tribally? Are we able to survive outside the chains of a supermarket society? Are we what we have? What about our ability to feel and to love? Are we still able to bond emotionally outside economical patterns and relationships?

The aim of the conference is to try to answer those questions – and arise new ones. We will keep questioning and finding solutions!
