IDEAFEST - Breaking Down the Fence: Exploring Refugee Advocacy Through Applied Theatre

March 08, 2016
04:30 PM - 06:00 PM
UVic, David Strong Building, Room C118

Ideafest 2016

Understanding the complexities of global refugee and migrant movements can be overwhelming—especially when we don’t have a way to actively engage with the issues and individual experiences. Following a short performance, this student-led workshop will use interactive Applied Theatre and Theatre for Development techniques to support meaningful dialogue that engages the community in a deeper understanding of the issues and moves us toward action. This workshop will be led by UVic graduate student Taiwo Afolabi and his classmates from the Applied Theatre program. (Participation in interactive theatre activities is optional).
