Community Programmes

We have conducted programmes in a number of local government and community organisations to assist in developing skills in participants or to tackle social issues.

Projects have included integration workshops and shows as well as developing theatre pieces using improvisation techniques to devise the scripts. Projects have also been developed for community organisations to help address problems for individuals or the organisations. These workshops are highly successful in developing a sense of "village". Once such project was held at Christmas Island where we ran an intergenerational programme - that is the whole family learning and playing together. The workshops focussed on skill development and togetherness. People got into teams (we had Mum, Dad, child and grandparent in one team) and competed in the community hall. The island has 3 ethnic groups (Chinese, Malay and Anglo-Saxon), all were represented in the workshop and show which apparently was a rarity on the island.

Recently we have been involved in a programme run by libraries called Finding My Place. It is focused on students struggling to stay at school and is designed to give students a range of alternative skills. We conduct improvisation workshops focusing on developing confidence, public speaking and working under pressure- all essential skills for a positive life.

We are also available for programmes for people with a disability, both adults and children. Past programmes have focussed on developing social awareness and skills as well as investigating some of the social barriers they need to overcome.
