Outreach Foundation Hillbrow Theatre

The Hillbrow Theatre Project provides performing arts training coupled with a commitment, from both the team and participants, to build self-confidence, teamwork, communication and empathetic skills; and keep this corner of Hillbrow vibrant and active. The local and international teachers strive to provide quality theatre training that enriches lives and develops emotional resilience.

The youth (ages 12 – 19) who attend the theatre programme (weekday afternoons and Saturday mornings) learn traditional performing arts skills, including vocal, dance, physical and drama training, driven by the need for inner-city youths to find and plot positive life journeys. The training is designed to develop empathy: for yourself, your colleagues, other cultures, religions and ways of living.

Our Core Values
The Foundation is a faith-based organisation, we therefore seek to restore a sense of pride in oneself as an individual and human being, so that the assisted person begins to look at him/herself as a human being with huge potential to succeed in life, to cope in life and to positively impact on his or her own future. The values that we seek to instill also in our program participants are the following:

– Humanity/Dignity: Every person has the right to humanity / dignity.
– Equality (Acceptance): We serve all people with equality (acceptance); independent of gender, sexual identify, age, colour, disability, religion and social background.
Awareness: We are aware of what people need.
Passion: We serve the people with passion.
Political consciousness: We encourage people to take responsibility for their own rights.
Anti-violence: Our behaviour and our language are peaceful.
Transparency and integrity
Artistic and creative excellence

     

 

     

Throughout the year, our facilitators conduct after-school performance arts programmes for school-going children and youth. These drama workshops are held at local inner-city high schools, and in the afternoons on Saturday mornings in the fun, creative haven of the Hillbrow Theatre.
