The project aimed to bring together a group of selected artists from all theatrical mediums (visual arts, street theatre, circus, clown, social theatre, performance art, physical theatre, dance, audiovisual) , which believe in Art as a tool for creating social change in society.
Using ‘The Ship Of Fools’: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_of_fools
