For French information: theater au service d'un changement profond et durable


7 modules of 1 to 2 days each

You bring an organisational or society related question or problem that you want to actively address.

We work on the basis of the initiative that you currently work on or would like to set up to
* raise awareness for and work with what is going on
* use theatre and organization transformation skills
* create a learning environment

The MCat is an excellent way to apply the ideas developed within the tradition of Systems Thinking (including the step to get from ‘basic needs’ to ‘active skills’).
In the modules, we fully focus on working methods, interventions and information that can have an immediate and lasting impact on changes on your own field of work. Through your own project/learning question you learn how to apply these skills.
Obstacles and questions that you meet on the way are used as working material in the modules.
