A group of people talking in a workshop session.

Our classroom workshops based in Forum Theatre methodology give students the opportunity to explore complex social issues in a safe, facilitated environment that encourages creative problem-solving. Accordingly, our workshops are customizable to the issues that are most relevant to your classroom and are compatible with a wide variety of social justice, equity, civics, and arts-related curriculum content.

In these workshops, students experience a blend of fun group games, critical discussion, and participatory theatre exercises in order to unpack, discuss, and find actionable solutions to the chosen topic.

Each workshop is carefully crafted to meet your learning objectives – whether you are looking to address a particular topic, or teach your class about the Forum Theatre process, we can design a workshop for your needs. Our workshops involve…
