An UNESCO-recognized educational tool for implementing social change, Forum Theatre is a community-focused, facilitated style of theatre designed to address social issues and inspire action for change.
Forum Theatre gives communities the agency to develop their own grassroots solutions and the ability to envision the positive outcomes of creating social change.
The techniques of Forum Theatre creation are transferable to a wide range of community engagement and educational initiatives.
Workshop participants will receive the skills to become better facilitators, artists, community leaders, and more socially-aware educators.
Deepen your understanding of Forum Theatre this March 2024 through our upcoming workshops facilitated by MCT’s Artistic Director Simon Malbogat. Under Simon’s leadership, MCT was declared Canada’s first Forum Theatre Centre by the founder of Theatre of the Oppressed, Augusto Boal.
These workshops are an exciting opportunity to learn the foundations of Forum Theatre from an esteemed FT Joker whose expertise has shaped the effective, engaging and empowering work MCT has been doing in diverse Toronto communities for 40 years.
