Interactive Theatre Workshop at the People's Health Movement UK

‘Prior to the People's Health Assembly in June 2012 I was fascinated to find out how 
theatre could be used as a means of exploring personal and collective interpretations 
of health. Having now taken part in a couple of fun and energetic workshops I can see 
how theatre is a great medium to analyse issues from unique angles, perhaps because 
it encourages us to use a different part of the mind from usual. But beyond pure analysis
, what I most appreciated was the way in which the workshops allowed people from
 various backgrounds to come together and collectively learn how we may act differently
 in the future. I look forward to developing these skills further.’
