Theme: Active Participation & Social Inclusion
This toolkit and associated material, introduce you to Forum Theatre as a tool for HIV and AIDS education. The toolkit has been written with special consideration for youth groups and amateur theatre groups in English-speaking Africa who wish to address HIV- and AIDS-related issues in ways that are creative and engaging.
By introducing theatre as a dynamic educational tool, this toolkit is meant to inspire creative ideas and reflection on HIV and AIDS. However, be advised that the concepts, exercises and considerations found here should not be considered applicable or appropriate to all contexts, even within English-speaking Africa, for which this kit has been prepared. By using your best judgement at all times, you will be able to discern what is most relevant and useful to your community. We hope that, by using this resource, you will be encouraged to use and get creative with Forum Theatre in ways that strengthen your own community’s unique response to HIV and AIDS.
