Cultural Guides in Social Community Theatre
It takes artistic talent, social skills and creative collaboration abilities to create the right circumstances for the local social community theatre participants to benefit from the talented artists involved. This is why one of the co-partners of Caravan Next, ZID Theatre, trains Cultural Guides for their community work.
For their grand Caravan Next event in Amsterdam 12th – 18th of December they work with the neighbouring communities. Social Community Theatre is not about performing for an audience: it’s a collaborative work where art contributes to social and personal development and where communities contributes in the creation of art with relevance and with the voices and stories of the real people.
For 10 weeks ZID theatre has trained a group of cultural guides and from June they start their work with the local communities preparing for their Caravan Next event in December.
