Mandala Theatre-Nepal is a group of theatre-workers committed to develop and practice a creative style which is strongly based on Nepali theatre and culture, as well as deeply rooted in our desire to be a strong and aesthetic voice for social justice, political awareness and human rights.
Since, Mandala Theater-Nepal started as a group willing to work on social issues through the aesthetics of theatre art, peace-building has been it’s one of the motto. Mandala has been exploring different methods, tools and approaches to work on peace-building and social transformation since its partnership began with Civil Peace Service (GIZ-ZFD) in 2014.
Mandala has been organizing various programs that support conflict transformation, transitional justice and dealing with the past in Nepal in a creative and non-violent way. Mandala has been working with the sociopolitical issues of marginalized communities. The primary objectives to do so are not only to support the minority communities but also to make artists aware of social issues.
As a team of artists and peace workers, we are regularly reflecting on different social-political issues to deal with these constructively and through dialogue. We believe in art’s potentials in transforming reality.
Following are the activities that are done through peace building.
