Our scenario based LIGHTNING FORUM Presentations, now available COMPLETELY VIRTUALLY, give you the opportunity to choose from a range of issues while maintaining the engaging, participatory style of a Forum Theatre show.

In this presentation style, we will create the Forum Theatre presentation addressing your chosen topics and our actors present it for you. Students then get most of the presentation time to replace characters and act out their own solutions – it is a high-impact and highly engaging platform for dialogue and discussion in a very safe and collaborative environment.

In the past, we have explored topics related to…

  • Gender Based Violence
  • LGBTQ2S Discrimination
  • Bullying + Cyber-bullying
  • Student Mental Health + Wellbeing

This year we are offering two Lightning Forum Presentation options for schools to choose from, depending on your goals and learning objectives.

Mental Health Lightning Forum Presentation

In discussion with Ontario educators, we are offering a special Lightning Forum presentation on student mental health and wellbeing during the pandemic. It will address major themes of isolation, depression, and anxiety in relation to the pandemic and new school structure.

Customizable Lightning Forum Presentations

If you would like to book a presentation on a topic not covered in the mental health presentation, we are also offering customizable Lightning Forum presentations which can address a variety of issues within social justice, equity and mental health.

The presentation format is the same as in our special Mental Health Lightning Forum Presentation but in this option you are given greater flexibility to choose the topics, themes, and sub-themes you would like addressed in the final presentation.


Semester: Available all year round!
