Theater Training Camps
Funded by UNICEF Chennai – Nalamdana’s Theatre Training Camps are for college and school students as well as community groups. Nalamdana’s core team of experienced actors trains young people in using theatre as tool to address social and health issues.
UNICEF Chennai funded Nalamdana to train about 100 village volunteers (young men and women) through 2008 and 2009 in the Krishnagiri District of Tamilnadu, which is one of the backward regions in our state. These trained teams have been performing in their village taluks – producing 8 to 10 programs per month August through December 2009. These teams of trained actors can now develop their own programs, creating their own scripts on issues of concern to them.
Nalamdana will continue to seek funds to support these teams. Training workshops for other groups take place based on funds availability. This program is an ongoing one and will continue through 2010 and further depending on funds.
