Module: Module 3 Local and Global Communities

Duration: 90 minutes

Social Development Theme: Arts


The exercise uses image theatre to support participants to identify some of the issues in their communities or the challenges that they’re facing. It looks at what’s happening now and then what the world/community might look like without that problem. It then encourages participants to analyse what needs to happen to move from the current situation (the actual) to the ideal situation. This activity could be used after some community investigating has taken place and once the issues have been identified.
