THE PROJECT: 2 distinct equity training intensives, by 2 distinguished Theatre of the Oppressed companies – across two continents with shared colonial histories.
IN-Justice Canada: August 1 - 6; Calgary
IN-Justice Australia: FULL
The Arts ExCHANGE Project is a unique, cross-continental collaboration between Stage Left Productions (Canada) and Third Way Theatre (Australia) – two renown Theatre of the Oppressed companies founded and led by diverse women – who invite daring agents of change to go beyond the social justice status quo.
Our IN-Justice Training Intensives offer . . .
A theoretical understanding of the principles and values that underpin social justice;
A practical understanding of how to apply Theatre of the Oppressed to social justice practice;
The ability to intervene across individual, social and structural spheres of influence, in solidarity with Others.
Both trainings immerse participants in embodied ways of learning and collaborating, which open-up new possibilities for marginalized people's' full and equal participation in society.
Participants can expect to . . .
Integrate Theatre of the Oppressed into our own work;
Experience the potency of embodied learning and sharing;
Learn a common social justice vocabulary, analysis and process;
Expand our knowledge of "diversity" beyond Identity Politics and binaries;
Enjoy compassionate processes of collective recovery from internal oppressions; and
Enjoy peer-based processes of gaining more confidence in acting against external oppressions.
