Creativity Tools for Youth Work: ‘Stage(s) of Life’ Training Course on Theatre

This training course will concentrate on the use of theatre as a tool for individuals and communities to bring about a greater sense of connection – connection to oneself, to the other, to society and community and to the natural world.


Drawing on methods such as Storytelling, Theatre of the Oppressed, Ritual theatre, Naturebased theatre and Deep Ecology work, the training will aim at providing a platform for reflection and tools to build more trust and understanding in our everyday lives.

In this light, theatre will be used as a multifacetted media to explore and deepen our relationship to Nature, Community and Selfdevelopment.
This will be a chance for participants to both experience these tools and methods and be empowered to use them in their home communities as well as personal and professional contexts.

The course will use non-formal learning methods and will take place in the beautiful surroundings of the ASHA Centre in the Forest of Dean, in the U.K. a centre of excellence in peace through the performing arts and international youth work.
