Project Rwanda: Year Four!

On July 5, faculty and students from the M.A. in Applied Theatre program traveled to Kigali, Rwanda for the fourth year of “Project Rwanda: Drama and Theatre Education for Reconciliation and Development.” The project was conceived as a multi-year program through which Applied Theatre students work with Rwandan young people between the ages of 11 and 25 to develop their social, educational, and cultural skills through drama and theatre.

The twin aims of the Project are to develop the use of theatre and drama strategies to promote unity and reconciliation among Rwandans and to create job opportunities by building applied theatre troupes, first in schools and later, in the professional, cultural milieu.

Participants will write daily blog entries to share their experiences with us at:
