The ARt’Themis project was developed by UMAR – União de Mulheres Alternativa e Resposta and funded by the Commission for Citizenship and Gender Equality (CIG) and the Secretary of State for Citizenship and Equality.
Directed to children and young people, the project’s main goals were to promote a culture of equality, peace, non-violent conflict resolution and women's rights, as well as to prevent gender based violence through the reflection about stereotypes and myths.
Within the primary prevention scope, the project focused on the topics of Domestic and Gender Violence, but also helped children and young people to tackle these subjects by identifying the problem, discussing and reflecting about it. The aim was to educate and inform on how to recognize potential signs of violence and to know what to do in such circumstances.
