The goal of Platform Art: A Participatory Arts Based Project, i.e. SELFTHEATRE (SAJÁTSZÍNHÁZ.ORG), was to make a model of arts based social intervention accessible in both urban and rural settlements where Roma and non-Roma people live together. Collaborating partners have launched a series of art workshops with the aim of developing new pieces of documentary theatre. Beyond presenting the plays that were to ease the significance of ethnic boundaries in everyday interaction, the project also succeeded in introducing the given artistic methods to local stakeholders.
The project was organized into four parallel subprojects, two of them mobilising and involving participants and stakeholders. No.1, entitled deskMATES (padTÁRS) circulated a participatory theatre about solidarity among the Roma communities and social service professionals in urban areas in Eastern Hungary. No.2, entitled knowledgeBASE (tudasTAR) organized trainings and published four new volumes and an online webpage in arts based methods for social intervention. The third and the fourth subproject produced new participatory art pieces. No.3 entitled heartVOICES (szívHANGOK) used the methods of digital storytelling and sociodrama in order to develop a documentary theatre, involving middle age Roma women, about their personal experiences in the health care system. No.4., entitled futurePICS (jövőKÉP) used photo voice and community graffiti to develop a site specific theatre and a documentary film about how young Roma people can work out their personal and collective future in villages in Southern Hungary. Workshops and regular public dissemination events (including six theatrical presentations, two films, four exhibitions) generated intensive media attention (more than 60 report during a month period) and involved more than 1.500 participants directly.
