As part of the “What If I Was Wrong? When We Talk, We Learn!” campaign the Centre offers two types of awareness-building workshops, the Quiz night and The Art of Self-Expression. These workshops aim to engage the people in the promotion of non-violent methods of expression as a response to social issues.

Following a two-year-long collaboration between the CPRLV and the collective Les Pentures, the play Captives (Embrigadés) was created as an education and prevention tool geared towards school and community environments. Drawing its inspiration from real stories and real-life events, Captives (Embrigadés) permits us to see radicalization from a humane and intimate perspective, and helps create spaces for the discussion of both radicalization and the polarization of ideas.

The CPRLV provides the following accompanying tools as complements to Captives (Embrigadés):

  • Preparation workshop before the play
  • Guided discussion following the play
  • Educational guide

If you would like Captives (Embrigadés) to be shown in your community, or if you have any questions, please write to or

*The play is only offered in French.
