Sparking joy in refugee camps

We are Changing Stories. A group of professional performers and artists using the power of play and imagination to uplift children in refugee camps, slums and asylum shelters within Europe.

Many of these children are dealing with trauma due to war, violence or displacement. Through theatre and play we focus on joy and synchronicity to create carefree moments, to relieve tension and stimulate resilience.

We stand against the injustice being done to children and minors who knock on the doors of our borders for safety and help.

Through our colourful projects we empower children, using their creativity to gain a sense of control. For a moment we shift the focus to what is possible.The impact immediately reflects in the reactions of the children and can last a lifetime. Together with children we create a new story.

Campaign with us

We are not able to do what we do without people who believe in the value of our work and are willing to support it.

With each €25 we are able to build an imaginary world of play and laughter with one child. You can make a one-time donation as often as you like.

Article 31 UN Declaration on the Rights of the Child 

In 1989 the United Nations adopted the Declaration on the Rights of the Child. The rights of displaced children in Europe are being violated on a large number of points on a daily basis, including the right to engage in play and recreational activities.

“States Parties recognize the right of the child to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts.”
