SOCIAL JUSTICE THEATRE
The “ACT Social Justice Theatre Project” is a series of collaborative workshop to create a one act play. The project’s intention is to make audiences aware, through healthy public dialogue, of social justice issues by providing awareness and education to promote positive change. Past shows have included themes on cyberbullying, LGBTQ, refugee and newcomer barriers and stereotypes, elder abuse, mental health stigmas, and homeless and marginalized youth.
Workshop participants are not required to take part in the performance portion of this project and no theatre knowledge or experience is necessary. This project uses brainstorming, discussion, visual art and improvisation to create an original, honest play.
