PRA and theatre for development in Southern India

PLA Notes International Institute for Environment and Development ( 29): 71-74

PRA and theatre for development in Southern India

An examination is presented of the introduction of a new education scheme with a community on Tamil Nadu, India in which PRA and practical drama activities were used. The paper considers whether PRA can be enhanced by integration with participatory theatre activities and what compromises may result from this synthesis. The focus of the project was with seven to 15 year old Dalit girls to encourage them to overcome political and cultural subordination.
