Parallel lives III

Parallel lives III.



The aim of the project PARALLEL LIVES III. is to test the possibilities of using experiential methods in influencing employers to promote increased employment for people at risk of social exclusion due to chronic mental illness in cooperation with Swedish (ACTIVA) and Czech Republic (FOKUS) partner in 4 regions of the Czech Republic (Prague,Central Bohemia, Plzeňský and Pardubický kraj). We build on the results and previous cooperation with our partners and on the successful projects Parallel Worlds and Parallel Lives I and Parallel Lives II. In the current project, we are mapping the needs of employers when working with the mentally ill and establishing cooperation to fill a specific job. The implementation of work placements will produce a document on their progress.

The activities of the PARALEL LIVES III project are divided into the following activities:

1. Working Group  

2. film preparation and audiovisual installation  

3. work with employment

4. Working with the mentally ill

5. work placements 6. evaluation

We are very happy to present our new short film on mental health and employment ! You will see employers and people with experience of mental illness who talk about their experience and needs at work. Take a look at our youtube channel and let us know if you liked the documentary:)

With our “psycho-box-instalation” we have already visited a large number of places, but some are really memorable. This weekend we went with the booth to Bohnic for the festival “BETWEEN FENCE”. We thank everyone who stopped by and we are very happy that you like our work …..:-). Preparations are underway for our next stop. Look forward to seeing you “somewhere” again soon!   




You can meet our interactive installation on 8-9.3.2018 at the International Fair of Job Opportunities and Education at the Prague Exhibition Centre. We look forward to meeting you!!! 


Here we go! The trailer for the audiovisual mobile installation is finished. Don’t hesitate to write us how you like it?
