Kecsup.hu organized its first discussion theater evening as the introduction of its new column and with its undisguised desire to reform public discourse on Friday evening at the Hunyadiváros Community Hall, which - despite the snowy and freezing weather - was attended by a good number of interested people.
The aim of the program was twofold, on the one hand, the organizers wanted to draw attention to the contents of their latest column titled Peripheral Situations, Destinies, which bring local or regional people and groups living in minority, oppression, discrimination and deprivation closer to us in a more tangible, tangible and acceptable way. . In addition, the articles in the section shed light on extreme, untreated, peripheral problems, highlighting good methods, exemplary life paths, and possible local or foreign solutions.
The debate theater form chosen for the implementation of the event served the purpose of allowing the participants to discuss the social topics brought to the surface by kecsup.hu, which affect many, within the framework of an interactive theater party game, thereby creating a healthy discussion culture based on arguments and mutual respect.
im/pro/contra Theater Evening with Kecsuppa
Would you like to think together about public, social, economic and other topics? Do you like to have a say in what affects you? Would you like to share your opinion? Would you listen to others? Then come to kecsup.hu's first debate theater evening, where we will clash the arguments and counterarguments regarding the two topics of our latest section, Peripheral situation, destinies!
"Does the state have the right to control content available to minors?!"
"Isn't it the duty of civilians to help with the material conditions of a public institution?!"
So, those are the two topics on January 19th, but what is debate theater?
Discussion theater is an interactive theater board game. Its aim is to create an opportunity for the participants to discuss the most serious social issues with each other and with the invited experts in a cultured and moderated manner.
How is it going, what are you preparing for?
So, you will see a short theater scene based on the given themes. The participants can discuss the important social issues raised by the theater scenes (e.g. human rights, migration, addiction, otherness, sexuality, education, etc.) in the framework of a debate provoked by the moderator(s) - mostly with questions to be decided. In other words, we will make one statement to be decided in relation to the topics (you could have read them above), and you should start by deciding whether it is yes or you take a position on the no side. After that, the debate led by the moderator starts, where everyone (with voluntary application) can express their point of view, argue and try to convince the "other camp". You can change your position at any time during the debate and join the opposing team.
