This booklet is written by Mary Moynihan and produced by Smashing Times Theatre Company Limited as part of Acting for Change, a year-long arts programme using high quality drama and theatre processes to promote reconciliation within Donegal and on a cross-community, cross-border basis. As part of the project, in addition to presenting a professional theatre performance and seminar, the company developed four new awareness raising participative drama workshop models, designed by Mary Moynihan to promote anti-racism, anti-sectarianism, equality and storytelling for reconciliation.
The four drama workshop models are printed in full in this booklet along with resource information for drama facilitators and a project description and independent evaluation for Acting for Change. The aim of the booklet is to share skills and knowledge and to make the drama models available to a wider audience. The models can stand alone or be used as part of a wider approach to promoting community relations and can be accessed by artists, drama facilitators, youth workers and teachers who are interested in using drama to promote anti-racism, anti-sectarianism, gender equality and human rights.
