The Genesis Project’s interactive puppet play “Not all of us are fliers” was played for the first time on Friday 25th December in Banja Luka in the elementary school “Petar Petrovic Njegos”. In the crowded hall of the elementary school the children enjoyed, sang and danced along with the actors and at the end they readily answered the questions about what they learned from this educational performance about. Those were the lessons about diversity, acceptance of others and different ones, about friendship and prejudices told in an unusual way.
The “Not all of us are fliers” play has been played several times so far in the schools of Middle Bosnia as part of the “Bridges of trust and cooperation” project which is being implemented in this Canton under the auspices of the German foundations Shuler Helfen Leben and Robert Bosch.
Interactive and educational puppet plays constitute an important segment of our organization which is the recipient of the prestigious international “Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders” award for peace activism that is given at the global level by the international organization Peace Direct.
