Take Part! Artistic expression for meaningful participation in addressing threats to Human Rights

Training Course

10-17 June 2024 | San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Spain

Art emerges as a powerful tool for empathetic communication, capable of addressing aesthetic and emotional dimensions of contemporary social issues.

@lps.demadrid has been working since 2013 on the use of Art as a social transformation tool.

In a world marked by increasing polarization in democracies, imaginaries of confrontation at the international level, and violence at the interpersonal level related to diverse inequalities, there is an urgent need to create peaceful referents and narratives reinforcing human rights and meaningful democratic participation.

We aim to empower 20 young artists, activists, and youth leaders with the skills to utilize art as a tool for effective political engagement, addressing contemporary local and global threats to human rights that particularly impact young people.


  • Gain a comprehensive understanding of concepts such as peace, various forms of violence, human rights, and conflict transformation, providing a conceptual framework for artistic expression.
  • Explore the concept of meaningful political participation and the role of art in shaping and reinforcing societal narratives respectful of Human Rights.
  • Empower participants to become catalysts for change in collective perceptions by creating emotionally resonant artistic works.
  • Develop proficiency in non-violent communication and nonverbal discourse analysis to enhance participants’ ability to communicate effectively through various mediums.
  • Conduct a mapping and analysis of participants’ local realities, forming thematic working groups to address the most pressing social issues through artistic expression.
  • Facilitate the design process for at least six follow-up activities to sustain the impact and momentum of the program beyond its initial implementation.

We look forward to welcoming you to this enriching training experience.
