The “Performing For Life” course provides training for peer educators and outreach workers / programme developers in presenting issues associated with HIV and AIDS through the use of arts. It consists of three main strands:
The escalating infection rates indicate that information and facts about the virus and modes of transmission alone does not usually change people’s attitudes or behaviour. Performing arts can provide a practical solution to engender behavioural change as has been proven in the past.
Too often prevention information and activities consist of ‘talking at’ people, telling them what they should and should not do. The clinical nature of most prevention campaigns fails to influence behavioural change. The arts are highly effective medium for disseminating information and training in HIV prevention. They are accessible and can be tailored to be culturally specific, to help insure greater engagement.
This course aims to encourage participants to create their own awareness raising initiatives using a medium of communication that is both accessible and enjoyable – performing arts. Enabling participants to develop awareness raising initiatives for hard to reach groups that are socio-culturally appropriate.
Duration : 4 days – (2 sessions per day delivered over 4 consecutive days or 1 day per week over 4 weeks)
Maximum No. of participants : 16
