The Arts

Theatre of the Oppressed   “Theatre of the Oppressed is the Game of Dialogue: we play and learn together. All kinds of Games must have Discipline – clear rules that we must follow. At the same time, Games have absolute need of creativity and Freedom. TO is the perfect synthesis between the antithetic Discipline and Freedom. Without Discipline, there is no Social Life; without Freedom, there is no Life.

Boing Boing Resource List   (UK) Boing Boing provides opportunities to learn about resilience. We run regular resilience forums, produce books and other materials and offer training and talks on resilient approaches to life’s challenges.  Working with children, young people, families and adults exposed to social disadvantage is at the heart of our work.
