What We Do
Advocacy Arts is a self-advocacy program based on elements from Theatre of the Oppressed.
Advocacy Arts uses Theatre of the Oppressed's potent and particular form of theatre and a unique creation process employing games and exercises to break inhibitions, creating a common language and building trust through team building. The group is then lead into exercises on an exploration of their issues, focusing on self-discovery as individuals or as a community, and raising questions about problem-solving. Finally, the creation process leads to play making, interactive theatre and film!
