Open Borders is an incredible online platform that connects young people from all corners of the world with one common goal – to stage a virtual play. The project uses drama as the central connection for a group of like-minded, enthusiastic and diverse youth. This connection encourages them to explore and learn about each other’s different cultures and languages and develop a sense of empathy, which in turn leads to a greater sense of tolerance within their own communities and spaces. They learn to engage with one another in a fun and exciting way and to bond and develop social unity skills as they work within a virtual team to create a theatrical production. They gain an understanding of shared emotions and vulnerabilities and inspire and motivate one another through their involvement in the project.
