UNITE in Schools Pilot Project

Public Domain are working with Unite In Schools on a pilot project to develop a suite of participatory, creative workshops to educate students about the possibility of resisting unfairness, bullying, sexism and racism in the work place, and through that to gain an insight of the wider collective struggles for freedom, equality and economic justice.
The project is inspired and informed by the work of Bertold Brecht, Irwin Piscator and Brazilian theatre director, Augusto Boal, and in particular Boal’s concept of the ‘Spect-Actor’, whereby participants are both the audience and the performers and are able to experience as well as think, giving rise to ‘light-bulb’ moments of understanding.

Above all this project is about inspiring and informing the next generation of active citizens and trade unionists.
