The Youth ‘Artivist’ Theatre Project provides significant opportunity for participants to contribute to a progressive, educational, and empowering experience that combines theatre with activism. The main objective of this initiative is to engage and implement creative, practical, theoretical, and educational tools that will allow youth to fully embrace, celebrate, and express their unique voices in a manner that promotes authenticity, resilience, and above all, community.
Workshops are structured with a strong focus on dialogue, story circles, and applied theatre methodologies that motivate youth to engage in problem solving through scene work and play building. Issues and topics such as: Bullying, Homophobia, Racism, Suicide Prevention, and others, may be explored through community-based theatre practice and facilitation. Each workshop will be motivated by the immediate needs of the group through a process of dialogue, reflection, and action.
Sessions can be explored solely as educational outreach, or towards the purpose of creating a final presentation. Therefore, the participants will have an opportunity to present a final piece with narrative that is driven by their unique experiences.
