The goal of this forum is to facilitate a dialogue on citizenship and applied theatre contexts through exploring the field of arts-based community engagement. The forum will also investigate the perceived boundaries and barriers for artist/educators committed to understanding the roles and responsibilities of citizens in both local and global communities. Questions to be interrogated include:
What is a citizen artist?
How can drama provide a forum to explore ideas of global citizenship?
How do we prepare future theatre artists/educators in the applied theatre?
How is theatre being used to rehabilitate people in prisons, health facilities, and elsewhere?
How do we assess participants' understanding and awareness in applied theatre work?
If you are interested in learning more about citizenship in applied theatre, come join us for this exciting forum comprised of artists, educators, young people, arts organizations and institutions dedicated to improving life for all citizens.
