The Amsterdam-based organizations PLEK
and I (David)
are curating the project Amsterdam Migrant Women Theatre Group
and would love you to join us and be a key participant in making this dream come true.
Your contribution will allow women who answer our callout to receive the basic training in the technique of Forum Theatre
, followed by regular meetings. The series of meetings of the Amsterdam Migrant Women Theatre Group will provide them a deeper understanding of the technique, strengthen the existing ties among each other, and create a Forum Theatre play out of their desires, struggles and necessities. You will be cordially invited to our theatre play once we have defined its details.
Inspired by the works of various women, their Forum Theatre projects and international networks, we would like to gather activist women who identify with the situation of migration for a theatre project, here in Amsterdam.
Why/When/How - Details of the Amsterdam Migrant Women Theatre Group
This is a nonprofit project and we are all volunteering in it. The costs of the campaign are for transportation, food allowance and the basic materials for the training and meetings. It will all happen at OT301: Overtoom, 301, Amsterdam.
