Hivos seeks qualified candidates for the position of Consultant for Art Facilitator.

Background

Creative Youth for Tolerance program (CREATE) aims to improve pluralism and tolerance in schools using art and cultural-based approaches. Art experiences can bring excitement and give pleasant and relaxing experiences. Art makes it easier for someone to accept different expressions of themselves and makes them understand different perspectives of their surroundings more easily. Students in high school age are in a phase of developing competence, self-identity, and seeking affirmation, amidst the dynamics of virtual and social interaction that mingle between good information and hate speech. Therefore, abilities to filter and sort out information as well as to respond to the information appropriately are needed. Students participating in the program are expected to have the ability to think critically, have an understanding of social inclusion and apply it in everyday life, including when socializing with their peers. In this development environment, the role of parents, teachers, and other educational communities is needed to support the progress of student competencies.
