#ACTFEM it’s a scenic-technological project and social activism with academic incidence, that fights against dropping out of school to stop gender structural violence.
It is a pilot project of social intervention through the performing arts, throughout an accompaniment to the baccalaureate, promoted by Plàudite Theatre in alliance with other agents, in order to deal with the school abandonment of girls for psychosocial issues.
According to the 2022 active population (PA) survey, school dropouts in Catalonia are 14.8% and particularly affects young women who, for intersectional reasons, are forced to give up their studies.
#ACTFEM is currently in the process of identifying candidates (carried out by professionals and counselors from the different high schools).
#ACTFEM will be developed at the Jaume Botey Public High School in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat (one of the most dense and diverse cities in Europe) throughout the 2023-2025 courses. Girls will enroll in any of the upper secondary school branches and at the same time integrate into the different areas that make up this stage project.
