ATiYF – 5th Edition
July 10 – 20, 2020
“ARTIVISM”

Every year our youth chose a title, a theme for the festival; this year’s theme is Artivism. We
define Artivism as artists who use their skills in socio-political activism.
ATiYF is an opportunity for mutual theatre and cultural learning, constructive dialogue and
solidarity, a chance for youth to speak up freely, raise social awareness and develop global
responsibility.
Artivism, enables our youth to become more active artists, citizens and social change mediators.
