Taller en Carabayllo

When: May 2017
Where: Lima, Peru
Institution: Carabayllo
Facilitator: Doris Sommer


In May 2017, a half-day intro Pre-Texts workshop was held for nurses, social workers, psychologists and teachers in Carabayllo, a town in Northern Lima where the mayor wanted to get to TB Zero by including education in medical prevention. The workshop was coordinated by Mercedes Becerra, in collaboration with Partners in Health.


The same week, Prof. Doris Sommer facilitated a half-day workshop on Forum Theatre. There were 80 participants, including the group that had participated in the Pre-Texts workshop, as well as other nurses, health technicians, community health workers, and current and former TB patients—some of whom lead local TB-patient groups. The workshop was electrifying for all, with 4 tragedies presented and spect-actors engaged.
