ImaginAction in Northern Ireland:
Since 2010 ImaginAction’s director, Hector Aristizabal has been invited each year by Pauline Ross, director of The Playhouse in Derry, and Elaine Forde, director of the ICAN (International Culture Arts Network) Project, to work with diverse communities in Northern Ireland. ImaginAction has trained local theater practitioners and other professionals in the use of Theater of the Oppressed and other methods to address issues related to post-conflict society and reconciliation. We have worked with groups from both Catholic and Protestant backgrounds including ex-combatants, troubled youth, and children on issues including violence and suicide prevention. More than 25 internationals have benefited from one-month internships with ImaginAction thanks to this collaboration.
