Junoon strongly believes that the arts must be an essential part of child’s growing years, regardless of opportunity, privilege and background. The key objective of the Theatre Inclusive programme is to take rich experience to low resourced children across the country every year. For this it is important to have local theatre groups equipped to create thoughtful and engaging plays for young people.
This year as part of Theatre Inclusive programme, we will conduct a series of Theatre Workshops for local theatre groups in Pune, Ludhiana, Patna and Bikaner. Shaili Sathyu will conduct these workshops.
We are delighted to bring Shaili Sathyu to conduct a Capacity Building Workshop for local theatre practitioners in Ludhiana on 11th and 12th June, 2019.
