Train-the-trainer NLC, SRI

Commencement Date

This collaborative project, Train-the-trainer is led by South Roots International and funded by the National Lottery Council and includes ARROWSA, Durban supported by ARROWSA Bechet and Bechet High School. The project aims to train community members from a number of areas in the Western Cape and one in Durban in the South Roots International community theatre model. This will result in a community driven production within each community by the end of the 11 months, involving the elderly in story telling, history from documents, parents involved in building sets and making costumes etc. Each community will end up with a production carrying the story of the community from historical establishment to modern day situation and hope in uncovering the redemptive purpose of the people. The Durban production will be performed in Sydenham and then in Cape Town in October 2023.

The Durban, Sydenham project is co-ordinated by the ARROWSA alumni Noluthando Shandu and Monique Mukendi with Mary Lange as administrative support. ARROWSA Bechet is participating facilitated by ARROWSA management Bheki Dlamini. Monique and Noluthando will attend training workshops in Cape Town during the preparation period before the production.
