Full Time






3 X 3-hour workshops
The workshops will be Saturday 14.00 - 17.00
Sunday 9.30 - 12.30; 13.30 - 16.30
+ Forum Theatre presentation to an invited audience at 17.30 (1 / 2 hours approx.).


These series of workshops explore the use of embodied approaches to professional development using techniques based on Forum theatre inspired by the work of Augusto Boal.
The workshops are structured on tried and proven methodology adapted from Applied Theatre and used for training in community settings, care homes, hospitals and many institutions focusing on personal and professional development.
In the first workshop we do activities to raise awareness of our context and brainstorm challenges and problems in our professional lives. In the second workshop these issues are explored and re-enacted in short dramatic scenarios. In the third workshop these challenges are presented to an invited audience to find solutions and alternatives.
The main advantages of this bottom-up approach to professional development are firstly, it is participant centered (the issues are real concerns and challenges of the participants), secondly the dramatic scenarios provide a safe space and frames the reflection and discussion distancing participants in a fictional world where solutions can be explored without repercussions in the real world while still recognizing their real-world relevance. Finally the methodology generates multi-voiced, multi-perspectival dialogue and is focused on finding solutions to real problems and inspiring action and change.

Istanbul is a major city in Turkey that straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait. Its Old City reflects cultural influences of the many empires that once ruled here. In the Sultanahmet district, the open-air, Roman-era Hippodrome was for centuries the site of chariot races, and Egyptian obelisks also remain. The iconic Byzantine Hagia Sophia features a soaring 6th-century dome and rare Christian mosaics.
