OWA Annual Retreat

September 29 - October 1, 2017

Theme: Equity Resilience Power

The main program will be a workshop which will use techniques from Theatre of the Oppressed to explore the topic: Equity Resilience Power. Theatre of the Oppressed, developed by Brazilian Augusto Boal, is based on the work of Brazilian educator and theorist Paulo Freire. As a teaching technique, Theatre of the Oppressed trains the audience to take action and explore critical thinking, analyzing current social issues. Our presenter, Elizabeth Gore, worked for a decade with Theater of the Oppressed groups in the U.S. and abroad. She trained directly with Theater of the Oppressed founder, Augusto Boal. Ms. Gore has a B.S. in Radio, Television and Film from Northwestern University (2003), an M.A. in Anthropology of Education from Stanford University (2007), and a M.A. in Teaching from Brown University (2008). After teaching drama at a high school in Richmond, CA, Ms. Gore will join the Industrial Areas Foundation as a community organizer.
