This webinar discussed community engagement techniques that use drama and art to help community members express their identity, feelings and aspirations, and make meaningful connections with others. These workshops can be adapted for specific populations and are often helpful to people with language barriers. Utilizing art and drama releases participants’ creative energies and creates deeply empowering experiences for participants. The results of these workshops may also provide insights that can help shape service planning and development.
