Anousheh Machouf, Marie-France Gauthier, Tomas Sierra, Cécile Rousseau : telling stories about play and playing about history as a way of building an identity

The Transcultural Research and Intervention Team (ERIT) has developed an in-school preventative intervention for immigrant and refugee youths. It is composed of a program of creative expression workshops called Théâtre-Pluralité and uses social and theatrical play to help young people navigate among their multiple feelings of belonging and to elaborate their past and present experiences. The goal of the workshops is to facilitate the reappropriation and sharing of the personal and group histories of these adolescents.
