SCREAM: Supporting Children's Rights through Education, the Arts and the Media
SCREAM is delivered by educators using an education pack, consisting of 14 modules. Three special modules on critical areas have been developed: SCREAM: A special module on HIV, AIDS and child labour; SCREAM: A special module on child labour and armed conflict and SCREAM: A special module on child labour in agriculture. The methodology is based on the arts - drama, creative writing, music and the visual arts – and on the media. Through the arts, young people are empowered to convey their message to the wider community. SCREAM also seeks to channel the creative energies of children and youth in positive and constructive ways and encourages “peer-to-peer” education, with young people reaching out to other young people.
The SCREAM modules are flexible “building blocks.” Activities can be adapted according to the time and resources available and may be part of a year-long education programme or one-off workshops. The modules are generic and can be adapted to any geographical or cultural context and to any formal or non-formal setting. In a number of countries, SCREAM has been linked to or incorporated into national curricula, often with the active involvement of teachers’ trade unions and public education authorities.
