Theatre for Policy Advocacy

Africa has a long history of sending messages through theatrical performances, particularly when the messages challenge the status quo. Community theatre is a way of levelling the field, breaking social barriers and addressing topics deemed taboo. It is especially powerful in areas where literacy rates are low and roles are shaped by cultural norms. Through community theatre, these farmers were equipped with information and training to develop evidence-based messages to advocate for policies and institutional arrangements that help women access agricultural input markets.
