Sharing Stories and Odd Arts; reflections on 2018
Back in 2016, Sharing Stories joined forces with Odd Arts to pilot a Forum Theatre project in Manchester and Liverpool. After the success of these events, we spent the next two years working hard to secure grants, fundraise, plan, and organise a Forum Theatre project in Uganda. This took place in July 2018.
Sharing Stories and Odd Arts - Forum Theatre Workshops Day 3 - The Performance!

Sharing Stories and Odd Arts - Forum Theatre Workshops Day 2

Today was always going to be a tough day, as we had lots to get through to start to pull together the content for the performance tomorrow.

Today saw the start of our Forum Theatre workshops in Kampala; a joint venture between Sharing Stories and Odd Arts, supported by MAITS. For the uninitiated, Forum Theatre is a set of techniques designed to produce a drama performance; the characters, the script and the themes of the performance are produced collaboratively between participants and facilitators.
