Don’t miss out on this exciting and challenging opportunity to showcase environmental issues through drama. Through our pre-festival workshop programme, learners will develop skills in theatre making and environmental theatre and creatively interpret and explore environmental information.
The Festival has two aims:
1. To build the environmental capacity of High Schools by showing the links between the curriculum and learning about sustainability and the challenges facing all of us, and to look for locally relevant solutions.
2. To make it possible for learners to express their life views and concerns, broadening their horizons by experiencing the magic of creating theatre. Learning the discipline essential to being on stage and developing the drama skills of scriptwriting, playmaking, basic acting and directing.
