REDUCING HARM VIA PARTICIPATORY THEATRE: A TWO-PART WORKSHOP
“We need to share our stories to humanize the issues around behavioral health!”
-Miriam Alvarez, Behavioral Health Systems Baltimore
Come and learn about using “theatre for social change” techniques to tell stories around your work and experience with behavioral health. You will develop a “story” about your personal relationship to issues such as drug use, treatment, recovery and harm reduction. Potentially crafted for public sharing, these “works in progress” could be developed to further animate occasions such as community events or advocacy work.
Sure to be fun and galvanizing, the workshop will empower you with newfound community building and civic arts skills to add to your toolkit. In partnership with the BRIDGES COALITION and led by Koli Tengela (Director, The Positive Social Change Theater Program) and Brian Francoise (Director of Community Engagement, Everyman Theatre), this workshop series is specifically designed for non-actors; people with little or no theater experience are encouraged to take advantage of this workshop.
Sundays, Feb. 11 & Feb. 18 from 1:30-5:00 pm
Everyman Theatre | Rehearsal Hall
315 W Fayette St. Baltimore, MD 21201
