For the last few years ImaginAction has been developing an internship/mentoring program for people interested in the practice of Augusto Boal-inspired techniques and community-based theater.  We have offered this mentoring opportunity in Northern Ireland, Colombia, The Basque Country, among other places. We are processing applications for practitioners interested in coming with us to China and be part of the Lanzhou International Community-Based Theatre Environmental Education Festival.
This festival is being organized by Allegra Fonda-Bonardi who has been introducing community-based theatre techniques to main land China for the last 6 months and whom participated in ImaginAction’s internships in the past.   Look at the description below and contact us for more information.
