In 2003, Theatre Embassy joined forces with Krater, to train the “edutainment-team” of the Red Cross Society Namibia in the project Sue Darkblue; a project offering a positive focus on colour/ culture- differences amongst people. The edutainment team was empowered with a method of integrating theatre, puppetry and visual art.
The project, which was executed in a large number of primary schools in Namibia aimed to create more awareness by scholars on the importance of basic human values such as tolerance, self-confidence and respect; hereby stimulating positive contact and acceptance among the different communities of Namibia.
