Acting for Change – Four Drama Workshop Models in Anti-Racism, Anti-Sectarianism, Human Rights and Gender Equality and Storytelling to Promote Reconciliation, by Mary Moynihan, booklet printed by Smashing Times Theatre Company Ltd, funded by Donegal CDB Peace and Reconciliation Partnership and the European Union’s Regional Development Fund


This booklet is written by Mary Moynihan and produced by Smashing Times Theatre Company Limited as part of Acting for Change, a year-long arts programme using high quality drama and theatre processes to promote reconciliation within Donegal and on a cross-community, cross-border basis. As part of the project, in addition to presenting a professional theatre performance and seminar, the company developed four new awareness raising participative drama workshop models, designed by Mary Moynihan to promote anti-racism, anti-sectarianism, equality and storytelling for reconciliation.

The four drama workshop models are printed in full in this booklet along with resource information for drama facilitators and a project description and independent evaluation for Acting for Change. The aim of the booklet is to share skills and knowledge and to make the drama models available to a wider audience. The models can stand alone or be used as part of a wider approach to promoting community relations and can be accessed by artists, drama facilitators, youth workers and teachers who are interested in using drama to promote anti-racism, anti-sectarianism, gender equality and human rights.
