Community out of Bounds /CUSP Theatre of the Oppressed workshop

MacRobert Drama Studio June 4th 2016  

Developed in Brazil by Augusto Boal, Theatre of the Oppressed is an arts-based approach to Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed - a common root of socially engaged art practice and radical community work in Scotland. In this workshop we invited people working with communities as artists, youth workers, adult educators, community workers, or activists to come together to explore how Boal’s techniques can be a powerful tool for engagement and empowerment in communities.
