Artistic Outputs – Kyrgyzstan
Small Grant Activities
In Kyrgyzstan, MAP aims to influence national curricula and youth policy, working with a network of Youth Theatre for Peace (YTP) drama clubs to establish child and youth-led forums to inform policy through theatre-based productions.
MAP in Kyrgyzstan focuses on the migrant child and youth population in the new settlements of Bishkek, of which a high proportion are out-of-school and also multi-ethnic communities, including border areas with a high risk of violence with neighbouring
countries like Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
MAP is working with Sakhna Nomadic Theatre and art-based institutions (Artist Group Sahna and Art Institution) to explore the use of cultural forms with a focus on Manas or the epics of Central Asia to improvise solutions to
current issues through the storytelling tradition.
MAP will build on initiatives such as the ChildFriendly Communities programme which covers both rural and urban areas and work with national and regional Departments of Education, local government bodies, secondary schools and out-of-school youth.
