MAP podcast – episode 3

28th March 2024

Episode 3 continues the conversation about the MAP project in Kyrgyzstan and its focus on activities that promote youth-led peacebuilding advocacy and initiatives through arts-based approaches. We hear from the project’s partners based at the Foundation for Tolerance International (FTI): Mrs Tajyka Shabdanova, MAP’s co-investigator and president of the FTI, and Mrs Anara Eginalieva, director of the Bishkek office of the FTI and the project manager. We also hear from two of MAP’s young participants joining us: Nazmiya Kyzy Rustam and Symbat Kyzy Zhanibekova.

The episode draws inspiration from young people’s artistic outputs and explores project’s methods and key themes such as ‘forum theatre’ and ‘intergenerational-communication’.
