Community theatre is commonly used as a means of gender awareness-raising. Role plays are also part of most gender capacity building and workshops. However, there are a range of interesting innovations in participatory drama which could be more fully incorporated for:
- Capacity-building workshops
- Multistakeholder negotiation
- Monitoring and Evaluation and Impact Assessment
The aim of participatory drama is not polished theatre, but to directly engage participants in identifying and rehearsing changes, and new ways in which women and men can relate to each other, and new ways of addressing inequality.
EVERYONE CAN BE AN ACTOR AND HAVE FUN WITH CHANGE.
