Belarus Free Theatre (BFT)’s mission is to be the world’s leading campaigning theatre company, using the arts as an instrument for empowerment and positive social change.

Our model of theatre for social transformation is based on three pillars:


world-class theatre productions, as an entry point for discussion and debate


young artists/community activists; delivering education programmes in the arts combined with training in citizen-led journalism and community engagement


audiences to engage in peaceful protest and resistance in support of democracy and human rights

BFT’s education programmes encourage young people, teachers, artists and activists to find their own voices, develop deeper social and political engagement and mobilise the power of art to bring about positive social change.
