Using Playback Theatre performances as a vehicle for change, participants will create a strategic plan to address a specific societal issue in their community. Practical instruction on identifying the target issue, community collaborators, financing, performance venues, marketing, recruiting, and rehearsing will be balanced with experiential learning. Special focus will be given to incorporating citizen actors in the performances impacted by this issue. Examples will be drawn from Village Playback Theatre’s Going Mental: Stopping Stigma campaign including video and personal sharing from citizen actors involved.
Prerequisite: Core Training
**Early Bird Discount** – register prior to April 15th and pay $628.00
