“Melissa’s training workshops are incredibly transformative” Adam Stapleton, Co-Director Governance and Justice Group

Arts for Action has trained thousands of people in diverse settings: from actors to paralegals, prisoners, farmers, women in recovery, political leaders. Trainings are usually tailored to suit trainee needs and range from teaching development practitioners to use theatre-based learning methods, to teaching artists about justice and human rights. All our training is practice based – meaning participants learn-in-action and through discovery, learning as much from each other as the trainer. Training for development practitioners and artists, students and activists are available in the following:

  • Facilitation
  • Playmaking
  • Physical theatre 
  • Devising socio-political theatre
  • Forum theatre
  • Programme Design
  • Being an artist and Development Practitioner
  • Interactive social research
  • Measuring change through arts action
  • Communication for Development  (C4D)
