“The Other” is one of ASA’s programs. It aims at providing an educational model that promotes the values of diversity and tolerance in surroundings based on cultural and social diversity. “The Other” uses artistic production as a means of expression.
The “Other” intends to provide a space for dialogue between young people of different social and cultural backgrounds where ideas relevant to diversity, difference, non-discrimination and tolerance are shared and exchanged. It gives the youth the opportunity to participate in the cultural and democratic development of their society, and engages them in the sharing of ideas and experiences while involving them in a joint effort to produce art work based on understanding and acceptance of the other.
In its first year of implementation (2005), the program used animation as the artistic discipline of expression. Different artistic disciplines such as theatre and film are foreseen for next phases of the program.
